Hi everyone my name is Brandy and I am 23 years old. I had a bad car accident at 16 and ever since the pain in my neck, back, hip, legs, and even down my arms is getting unbearable. I don't have health insurance because I can't afford it but I received financial assistance through a big hospital to help. When I was 18 a great orthopedic surgeon found that I had a herniated disc on my l5 but because I was so young he didn't want to do anything. Recently the doctor I have seen has done xrays, mri's, and an emg/nerve conduction test in my legs and lower back. He hasn't found anything and I know something is seriously wrong. I know my body and I know how bad my pain is every single day. He has practically given up, claiming there isn't enough proof to go any further. Honestly, I'm positive he isn't seeing the issue and I don't know what else to do. I am way too young and would love to finish my degree in Psychology and be somewhat normal again. My toes and fingers even go numb.. I feel like if he were a good doctor he wouldn't stop until he found what's causing me so much pain. Has anyone experienced this? Wh a t should I do?
