I was in a car accident 6 months ago, had PT but pain in my neck has never completely gone.
Suddenly about 3 months ago my neck flared up so badly I couldn't stand it, it hurts in every part of my neck, the flare ups last for about 6 days then settles a little for a day or two then flares up again. then I started getting awful pain in my back when I was walking, then sitting, standing...pain in back started in the middle and has now gone in to the lower part/top of hips so it is all just getting worse.
My Dr reluctantly sent me for an MRI but just of the neck, I was hoping for the whole spine...MRI came back normal and my Dr says take OTC pain pills and Vicodin, I "just" have whiplash and it will clear up.....if this is "just" whiplash God only knows what other people are going through, when the pain is so bad all day all I can think of please take this pain away.
Does this sound like the whiplash is not clearing up?
I have never in my life felt this much pain in my neck and back, it's beyond terrible at times.
Has anyone else had this and it just clears up??
Any help/advice..thank you very much for listening, this is awful....
