Chronic Neck Pain- MRI comes back normal
About 4 years ago I had a cheerleading accident. I was mid-backflip and my foot slipped off the mat, and I landed on my back, on top of my head. Hard to picture, yes. My forehead had a bruise on it.. My head bent all the way back when I landed. Now, I have chronic pain. The pain is daily. Whether it is severe or moderate- it fluctuates. When the accident happened I went to the chiropractor who just took an x ray and then got a little device and popped it on my neck. I'm not sure what it did, I thought the problem was fixed. I'm also not completely sure if the pain ever really went away because I've been used to it being here for so long, but it's never been this bad. About three months ago it flared and I had multiple X-rays, the doctor said I have no curve to my neck and that c-3 is misaligned. He also said something about the x-ray being blurry due to all the muscle spasms. He put me on steroids and anti-inflammatories. It didn't help, so he ordered an MRI. I did the MRI about a month ago and it came back completely normal (I did the MRI laying down) so I just said screw it. I'm in horrible pain yet nothing seems out of the ordinary? Here I am in excruciating pain and nothing can be done to help me. I read a forum that someone had an MRI (laying down) that came back normal and had another MRI standing up that came back with 4 bulging disks. Can anyone relate to me? Anyone know what might be wrong?
