15 years ago a boyfriend tore my neck back smashing my head against a telephone pole and held me there for 10 minutes while blood gushed out of ears. I have lived with excruciating neck, shoulder, and arm pain since.
I was diagnosed with "whiplash: and it would go away, well it never went away and for 15 years I have probably been to 100 doctors trying to get answers.
All day everyday I am in agony tortured by my arms/neck and headache caused by it. I take care of a toddler by myself and I just want to cry. I dont understand why as soon as I so as enter a doctors office they automatically discount everything I say, like they dont believe me, and everything I say is followed by "MMMMHMMMM"....
Everytime I go to the doctor to try to get help I end I in tears. all they do it belittle me, minimize my pain, try to tell me Im imagining it????, dont believe me???WHY? I am just try to get help to live my life, why be so mean????????????????
I just want to be able to take care of my toddler without a headache everyday, why are these doctors so mean to me everytime I dont understand?
And I dont understand this pain, it is everywhere ever square inch of my arms shoulders. My shoulder and arms feel out of place and I have to click and pop them back into place all day, and neck has big bulge I have to stretch it and release it every 2 minutes all day.
My whole day consists of stretching my neck, holding for 10 seconds and letting go, followed by both arms. Its all I do all day every day, every 2 minutes literally. If you saw me in public all you would see is me with my neck to one side every 2 minutes literally.
I cant look up anymore, I cant look down anymore, I can barely get dressed anymore. I dread going outside because I have to have straps on my shoulders from my bra and any aggravation leads to headache that lasts for days.
I do everything to take care of my toddler and force myself to try to ignore the pain but its impossible. It widespread all over me, feels like arthritis everywhere. What is going on?
And why are these doctors so mean to me it makes it even worse I just cry and feel so alone with no help.
I finally got a MRI in November but aside from this what can I do?
