I need an answer.. Please help

I am a female in my early twenties, I was in a car accident about 4 month ago and was rear ended by someone who was going about 50 mph. since then I've been told I have a tear in my posterior longitudinal ligament on the right side at C2-3 C3-4 and it is severed at C6-7. Ive been experiencing SEVERE pain and i am now starting to twitch or i guess have muscle spasms throughout my body. the pain doesn't ever go away. I think someone thing else may be wrong. If anyone has any ideas please I'm all ears, Ive been to so many doctors and they all tell me the same thing. to keep seeing this one specialist who
:"knows" what he's talking about but i feel like something else is wrong. The spasms and twitching isn't right and is not a symptom of the tear.

  • Yes i have updated my doctor on my symptoms and I'm waiting to see a neurosurgeon and my neurologists. my neuros are not aware of my new symptoms. and there are so many like I'm having "brain" thinking difficulty. Its hard to explain. I'm doing PT right now and MFR to help with pain.

    have you consulted with a board certified spine surgeon yet? if not, it would be wise to start there, and see what he recommends. i would be very careful of physical therapy until you have been cleared to do so by a surgeon. a ligament tear can be complicated so seeing the right doctor is important.
