Long story short I was sitting at light was rear ended driver going 30 to 35 mph
Was knocked unconscious immediately sent to hospital some x ray diagnosed concussion, Whiplah.
Scheduled with Ortho as we all know with no rush of urgency so 12/8 I have multiple things going on
heavy feeling on neck and shoulder with radiating pains 8 inches from neck in spine, arms lost some strength hands falling asleep at nigh
Left Hip, Knee, Ankle pain
Buttock burning on left leg tight muscle from bottom of but to knee.
Middle back one spot burns so bad all the time why my bottom back I can bend to do dishes laundry thankfully I work in office so when the heaviness on shoulders start I lean on wall however my thighs shake to go up stairs I get sharp shooting pain inside thigh that shoot so of to groin area its very strand.
I was given Neuroton 300 mg 3 daily flexeril 100 mg 3 times daily diclofunec 75mg 3x daily
was scheduled for MRI on 12/12 and PT to start 20lb on 12/14 did PT could hardly move when MRI came he cancelled all PT told me to not lift over 20 lb also to stay away from anything that could jerk my kneck. I was given not pain medicine 1.
He did not explain MRI to me just schedule ESI I did this morning at 9 it made my left arm jerk a lot mass pressure on left side of neck and my right side of face feels a little number with shooting pains everywhere. UGH
So my PCP doc told me I need to go to  clinic I called ortho (all this office of for is hips, knees, hand, elbow)
Was surprised at the Radiology report seaming only thing doc said to me is have you had spinal surgery I said know he said we will start less invasive first.
1. Multilevel broad based mixed spondylotic disc desplacements c3/4 through c6/7 with ventral cord flattening at c5/7 c6/7
2. Multi mild grade foraminal stenosis secondary to undinate hypertrophy.
Cervical disc herniation c5/6 c6/7 with flattened ventral cord and radiculopathy
As my doctors admin only told me I had spinal compression when they call me on Monday not to go to PT and the other restrictions. I told her I am in major pain and they said unless they operate or I have fracture they can help me to call my family PCP
I am 43 and my life has changed now forever the herniated disc and other pain was from accident however reading the cord compression and stenosis I am never going to be the same, I was pain free never had problems however this jolt has moved it to full gear.
I had to go to hospital on new years eve I literally coudnt walk I an improvising something due to my low back, hip, thigh and heel paid that my knees were swollen.
they gave me a shot of pain pill, valium, and toradol (strong anti anflamitory) it helped my knees so I only wobble around .
they also gave me lumbar and thoracic MRI she said they cant diagnose at hospital only mane sure my cord isn't completely severed.
So I go to doc Monday to let him go over these MRI.
With multilevel stenosis ive
