A little over 2 years ago (Feb 2013) I landed incorrectly on a trampoline during diving practice. We went to get xrays immediately and the only thing they saw was that my neck is lacking the normal curve. However, I am not sure if that was related to the accident. I was then told my muscles have spasm-ed out of place. I was given pain meds and a neck brace. For the following year or so I tried some PT, massage therapy, and went to a chiropractor weekly. I went away to college and had to quit the treatment. My concern is I am still having pain 2 years later.
Some movements involving my upper arm radiate pain from my shoulder to my neck and I generally always have to stop what I am doing- it almost feels as if i am going weak/limp. Sometimes chewing and drinking hurts (although I am noticing this pain less). But, worst of all, I have terrible pain most of the time I have to look down at any angle (even if it's just barely..) Right now, typing this, I have some discomfort. It is really bad when I have to look down- which I have to do often as I am a student so I am constantly writing or reading. The pain is generally a deep dull nagging pain until I stop what I am doing/looking down.
My doctor has said I shouldn't still be having pain. Unfortunately my parents don't understand how painful this is so they just shrug it off when I tell them about my pain.
Any ideas why I am still having pain? Is it worth getting something more than an x-ray? I just feel something is wrong, but having trouble convincing my parents.
Thanks in advance!
