I had quite a bad car crash 2 yrs ago, i was hit from behind shunting me into car infront and them into car infront of them. My car seat frame snapped and hit me in the back resulting to fracture to T8 and severe whiplash. Today Iam still in severe pain from my back which feels like someone has stabbed me with a hot knife and also my neck, shoulder and arm. I can hardly turn my head due to pain and swelling, to look at me inow look abnormal as the right side of my neckis much much bigger than my left. My head pulls completely to the right and shakes which is very embarassing. This has affected my life so much I am on light duties still at work thats when I can get in. I have had physio, hydro, accupuncture but nothing sees to be helping. I am also taking Buprenorphine BuTrans 15mg Patches, Dicolfenac 50MG, Solpadol 30/500MG, Amitriptyline 20MG, Movelat Cream and now been put on Diazepam. Has anyone else been through something like this or can raise a slight glimmer of hope and I now feel as though I am at the end of the road as I can not take much more. It is affecting every single aspect of mylife and I am no longer sure what to do.
I suffer from chronic pain as well. I just want to say WELCOME to this great site!!
Are you currently seeing a Pain Management Doc? Pardon my questions, but the more we know, the better we can help.

Hi Bev, my friend Sweetlemon has alerted me to your predicament. My heart goes out to you girl. No one should have to suffer like that. Please see a pain mangement doctor to help you get on meds that will help control your pain, but first, get an appointment with a neurosurgeon & see what can be done surgically with your neck & back. Are you seeing a neurologist? I can't believe you haven't had some kind of surgery to correct the problem with your neck. I kind of assume you may have already been down this road, but at this juncture don't know what else can be done if that's true. Maybe some counseling to learn to deal with the whole crises & the pain. It's a little different for me who has chrontic pain, but it came on slowly, not like you in an accident. I can understand how you feel about not knowing what else to do. Let me know what has been done so far & maybe we can work from that. Welcome to our site. We are here for any & all. I wish you the best...
