Hey guys! Im new. I had a car accident around Thanksgiving where I was rear ended. I had some pain and soreness afterwards but didnt think much of it. However, the pain got worse and I went to see a chiropractor. Though it helped some, anytime I did ANY physical activity the pain and stiffness returns. My job requires lifting, while they have made accommodations for me and I do not lift much even a light package (5 pounds) causes stiffness. HOWEVER, over the weekend if I lay around a good bit I barely notice it. I went to the doctor last week and he prescribed me a NSAID and muscle relaxer which isnt doing a lot. From my understanding I might have some muscle tears or something? It's been 5 weeks already. Obviously y'all are not doctors, and I am seeing another doctor tomorrow, but I need advice. Does it sound like I have something that will be permanent?
PS: I do not have any pain radiating into my arms, etc. Just significant tightness and some pain between my shoulder blades. Thanks so much
