Hello. I'm hoping to get support and maybe some ideas for future treatment. Car accident 1 yr ago, dx whiplash, facet jt syndrome. Finally had a MRI last week. Will get results next week. Pain every day, often leads to migraines. I've been lugging around a toddler- who was 8 mo at time of accident, have had no time to rest my neck. Have had pt off and on through the yr with slight results. Funny thing about pain is its like peeling an onion and when one layer is peeled back I realize I was in alot more pain than originally thought. Make sense?


  • Do you have a pain management Dr? They do facet joint injections to help you feel better. I hope your results from the MRI are positive. It's too bad they didn't do an MRI at the time of the accident. I hope you get more pain relief. I can't imagine having to carry the toddler around and I hope you're using a stroller but I know to lift must be taking a number on you. I wish you all the best that you'll heal soon. Take care.

  • I must second that thought. I could not even imagine having to care for a toddler with all of this pain. I hope that you find some type of relief soon.

  • Hi Charry & Paul. Thanks for your replies. I had a CT scan post accident at the er and it was pretty much "normal". My primary care dr expected the pain to go away after 3 months, 6 months max, but here I am 1 yr later, still in pain. The accident was very violent and I am grateful to be alive- especially grateful that my whole family survived and basically walked away after the er.
