new tingling sensations

Hi folks,

I had a minor car accident the other day. I suppose I am now experiencing the whiplash symptons that only a person with a history or neck issues is likely to have. I now have tingling and numbness on the right side of my face. I also have renewed pain, tingling and muscle spasms down my right arm and neck and shoulder.

I am afraid to go through the cycle again of trying to figure out what is wrong!

  • Hi and Welcome to Spine-Health. I was reading your history and your poor neck has been through so much. I don't have issues in the cervical area (knock on wood) so I wouldn't be able to help you.

    I would however, suggest you get this checked out. If you are experiencing numbness then you shouldn't mess around. Did you report that your neck was bothering you or anything when you had the accident?

    I can offer my support and pray that you are ok but don't put this off. You really should get this checked out by a doctor given your history and possibly have an MRI right away.
  • ming is 100% correct that you need to look into this quickly. with all of your previous neck issues an auto accident is more likely to shake thing up in your neck. the sooner you get the aid of a surgeon who specializes on the spine the faster you can get relief and avoid future problems from this trauma. medication to reduce swelling and control pain/discomfort should benefit your situation
