Cervical injury looking for help

I am a police officer while on a traffic stop was hit by a drunk driver 8 weeks ago. Since the accident I have experienced life altering pain to my left shoulder arm wrist and have tingling in my fingers. I have also been dealing with intermittent disabling pain to the middle back that feels as if I am being stabbed with a knife and a throbbing pain to my lower back that leaves me bed ridden at times. After two MRI's my orthopedic doctor diagnosed me with two cervical discs and cervical spinal stenosis. I have been taking cellebrix daily and was given Percocet, which only seems to take the edge off when the severe pain hits, without notice. I have also been going to PT for the last 6 weeks, which gives me some relief for a few hours but the pain comes back shortly there after. I am due to meet with a pain specialist this week for possible injections. My question is, the pain is it normal? Are the injections the right direction? Or is there possibly something els that could be going on with the severe pain moving down my back?
