    I was in an accident back in May.
    Ever since the accident my neck and back are pretty much totaled...I'm still thin, actually thinner..
    I still work. Nothing has changed...
    Other than the fact that I am in constant fucking pain.
    Myotherapy combined with a chiropracter has helped alot.. I can't imagine being without it.(Myofascial trigger point massage therapy.)
    What's really messed up is that the emergency room visit yeilded no results at all. I have a bulging or disintegrated disc, for sure...When I injured it the first time (not the accident) I had about a two inch tall swollen sac of fluid around that vertabrae. They never even called me with x-ray results. You can feel the damage with your index finger.
    The problem, I believe though, lies in my neck.
    I'm on the verge of losing it. The headache never goes away, sex, painkillers, even off topic have become coping mechanisms because they distract me...Work is a nightmare right now.
    This is bad, surely I can't live like this forever? The painkillers aren't going to last forever, & they do a better job of distracting me from the pain than killing it. They are expensive as hell, & they run out. I'm building tolerance too.
    I took a 20 mg time release morphine tablet that a concerned soul gave me so I could get some sleep the one night.
    If morphine fails to kill the pain....?
    I'm making a doctors appointment on Monday, & seeing a myotherapist, & chiropracter this week. This one specializes in scalenes, they attach everything from neck to back..
    Anyone have advice, sympathy, similair situation happen to anyone....? :sadwavey:

    So sorry for your mom:sadwavey: ..That sucks...I'll update on it.
    I hope I can do better than that. With a choice over that...I think I'd opt to keep the achey head.
    I've already started thinking I may not have a choice.
    But not attempting to get help isn't an option either.

    Thankyou DarkEternal, I'll look into them. :)
    Honestly, I've been eating vicodin 500s.

    I've got burning pain at the back of the neck. Inside of each elbow. Inside of kneecaps. Sciatic too. Both shoulders, & the muscles in my arms feel bruised.
    I got pissed off the other day & I had a burning sensation run down from the top of my back into each palm where the burning turned into a mad heat/itching briefly, itching from the inside, very hard to describe. Then, it felt as if it withdrew back into between my shoulders.
    These symptoms are intense. Back in 1991 I was parked in a car talking with a friend of mine when we got hit from the front passenger side. I went through the windshield that night.
    That was fun![/sarcasm]
    This time I got hit at a redlight by someone doing 45 or over. Said the brakes failed, turned out to be bullshit.
    I still lift things and do physical things at work. I will not stop moving. No matter how much pain is there. I refuse to let it beat me.
    I'm going to sched. an appt. tommorow and see about getting an MRI.

    keep us informed, if you describe your issues as whiplash doctors will know more appropriatly where to look at.

    Thanks PuppyCat. I do appreciate the well wishes.
    DarkEternal, I've got to tell her. No choice.
    Although, reading through that spineuniverse site a bit was heartening. There is a possibility that I'll pull through okay. I certainly don't expect things to be perfect. Better would be cool. :)
