Im 22 years old and 2 years ago I was in a horrible car accident I thought I would have recovered fully by now but I have been in pain everyday since. My injuries were broken hip shattered kneecap broken tibula broke femur a compression fracture in my back and a couple ribs and all my brakes were on my left side i also crushed my spleen and my liver. I did a lot of physical therapy and everything seemed to get better but my back and my hip my back has been bothering me the worst since the accident but they never seem too concerned about it they were always focused on my hip but I have pain every single day sometimes it's mild and sometimes it's unbearable. I went back to the doctor recently because my back pain got so bad I couldn't walk or hardly breathe it was a different kind of pain I've never felt before she said my spine was starting to twist so she cracked it and it felt better for a while that pain was gone but it never got rid of the original pain iv been haveing sense the accident i always have a burning aching feeling in my middle back and it shoots to my ribs to the front of me sometimes it's hard to breathe in and sometimes no matter if I'm sitting or standing or laying nothing I do will make me comfortable. My hip also has pain but it's very mild on and off and just when I'm walking on comes and goes a couple times a month so I haven't been too concerned about that but my back is the main issue I've seen a spinal specialist I have went back to the doctor several times and all they tell me to do is stretch I stretch everyday twice a day doing the same things they've told me to do and still nothing seems to be working the only further tests they done were x-rays on my back I haven't had any CT scans on it so I don't know if they could be missing something or what else I can do?
