whiplash then accused of psychiatric illness

I was rear ended in my car and have suffered terrible symptoms as a result.
What I thought would be normal a whiplash injury turned out to have some very severe symptoms.
I had negative MRI and MRA scans and because the Neuros could find no problem, they have now labelled me as a psychiatric case.
My family Doctor was an eyewitness to one episode I suffered and was fully supportive of me until he read the report that came back from the Hospital. Now he is quite dismissive of me.
At one stage a movement neurologist diagnosed me with ‘probable dystonia’ after viewing some video footage of some of my symptoms. Then without giving me a reason for changing his mind, referred me to a Psychiatrist and it all went downhill from there.
I am a 50 y.o. happily married man. This labelling is something what will be very difficult for me to have reversed, it is totally wrong. I have lost a lot of sleep over it and will continue to do so until (if ever) I can have it corrected.
In this regard, I don’t think I can be on my own as I am sure others must be in the same predicament. It is disgraceful.
I have put just three of the links to some video episodes that I am suffering.
By the way, if I could act like this, I would have been snapped up by someone in Hollywood a long time ago.
I will be complaining to the Hospital, but am well aware that doc's all close ranks.

I do have other symptoms too but there is plenty here for you to have an idea of how I can "act".

Is there any help out there for me to help with this situation?

I am in Liverpool in the UK.

  • Oh my God!!! You poor thing. You seem to have had quite an accident and probably need some type of surgery, but not at the hospital where you keep going. If I had the money, I would fly you to the United States and get you some help!!! Someone has to help you. I think your brain got bruised, causing the speech problem. Have you had an MRI and Cat Scan? You need expert help but you may not find it in your country if you keep getting such horrible treatment. If I win the lottery, I promise I will bring you here.When I was a newlywed, I got sick in Mexico and then coming back to the States, I had funny symptoms and went to the military hospital. They sent me to a psychiatrists, too. What a way to start a marriage...it didn't last...they told him I was nuts...or something..

  • You need to see a brain specialist. You are definitly not acting - that is for sure. If you can't get to see one where you live, then you need to travel until you find one. That must be awful for you... Sorry, I am unable to be of more help. Kiera

I am at a total loss as to what is wrong with me at this moment in time. I can get no help from the Doc's here (yet) as they read the previous doc's notes and just repeat the results to me and then I'm dismissed. I only learned yesterday of a common joke about Neurologists yesterday from someone whom used to work at the Walton Centre for Neurosurgery and Neurology in Liverpool : What is the difference between God and a Neurologist? Answer- God is not a Neurologist! I thought that said it all for me as I have found that the ones at the Hospital where I went to all think they are gods. (lower case g mine- not theirs, they would the capital G.) if you follow what I mean.Thanks for your very kind offer Monsterlove and your kind thoughts.Best Regards Linsky

My own Doc at first thought I had a brain problem, but when the Neuros said I was a psychiatric patient, he bowed to the god's and put them before what he had seen with his very own eyes - 'one of my episodes'. He has now joined the ranks of the ones that think I'm a psych patient. He is either got a very poor memory, or is a downright coward for bowing to something he doesn't really believe in himself.

  • I think you had a lot of bruising when you had the accident. Ask them if they have ever heard of "Shaken Child Syndrome" and pretend you are ten months old and apply the same medical procedures to you. At this point, I would write letters to the head of the hospital. I don't know about the laws in England...if a lawyer could get you some help. Can you see a doctor outside of your town? You could have some type of hairline break (ah, would a slightly broken neck ever be considered) and it is very small. Another or a different x-ray view might pick it up. I don't think a chiropractor should work on you until we are sure you don't have that hairline fracture, but if there is no fracture and we are sure of it, I would be looking for the best chiropractor in the country. Look up your symptoms in homeopathy online and begin on homeopathics.Sorry, I did not win the lottery tonight once again.

I have had neck x-rays done that revealed there were no breaks in my neck. In regard to shaken baby syndrome or any other possible true diagnosis that is truly pertinent to my case, as an 'official nutcase' no one will listen to anything else. The Doc's all copy and paste the 'psychological' diagnosis in my medical notes, but also in their heads too. They, paradoxically, are 'psychologically' affected by a wrong diagnosis. Below, I have pasted a link to one of the latest episodes that I have suffered, in fact, on the same evening, I had approx 3 hours of episodes of different sorts. I would not even attempt to give the Doc's any more video footage of my episodes as they just get angry with me (yes, this is 2007 and it is disgraceful) because they have labelled me a psych case, no Judge nor anyone else in authority will listen to me. One good thing is that all my friends and family and of course our Creator, know that it is the Doc's that are wrong and not me. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4673972418379589433 Best Regards linsky

  • He is a coward and doesn't dare take a stand against the specialist you talked to. Are there any private clinics that can refer you to a proper specialist? If not, then you must have the right to a second opinion? In any case you need to find someone who will listen even if it means leaving the country. You definitly have an issue and that issue is not imaginary even tho it looks like it's all in your head. Keep us posted! Kiera

I have my medical records that confirm that there are things written them that are incorrect, but the 'gods' refuse to even look at any points I raise because they say that this confirms even more to them that I am a psychological patient. So I have to be patient, every dog has it's day is the saying. In the meantime tho' I am being denied proper treatment. I had a terrible bout of attacks on Tuesday 6th Nov. I'll post the links here if you would like to have a quick look and see what you think. You may hear me say a couple of sarcastic comments about the medics but that is because I am so annoyed that the people whom should care for us properly are being derelict in their duties.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6991163335400475906

  • hello...I was looking through all of your videos and you my dear are not a pysch patient at all!!!!! From the looks of things you may have something as simple as nerves being pressed on. Have you tried myofascial release? I was in a rear end collision almost a year ago and I occasionally will have abnormal tremors in my arms. I swear by myofascial release it really does help. Really from the looks of your videos you have some underlying nerve issues. They may be pinched, they could be wound so tightly in your muscles that they don't know what to do. Screw those doctors...I relate very much to you in many ways and they are just trying to make you think your crazy.

  • Even before watching your videos my heart was gripped as I read your story. It mirrored my experience after a MVA and the medical profession...Being discounted, dismissed, discredited is an agony that compounds the physical misery. The only help and hope I have been able to get has been from care I recieved from medical providers who are Board Certified Neurology Diplomates who are chiropractors. (These chiropractors continue their education for more than three years to specialize in neurology from a functional perspective. After there study and passing a Board exam, they become Chiropractic Neurologists.) The most reknowned neurology institute is in Florida, USA. Look up Dr. Carrick. I wasn't under care with him, but I got help from Chiropractic Neurologists who were trained by him. I think there is a school called Carrick Institute in Florida. I was not expecting to be helped by a chiropractic neurologist, I had been seen by three neurologists while in the hospital. But a friend insisted and even though she didn't have the money, she insisted on paying for my evaluation. I went to just appease her and had no plans to continue seeing this doctor. But within a few minutes of his evaluation, I knew that I had found the resource to help me. His exam was much more complete than all three of the medical neurologists put together that I had seen in the hospital. Even though my condition was so complex, he wasn't so overwhelmed and he didn't take the easy way out of calling it a psychiatric disorder. But, that is the only diagnosis that doctors have who don't have the training that Chiropractic Neurologists have. The chiropractic neurologist validated me and provided the hope and help that eventually helped me to get my life back. One of the most excellent chiropractic diagnosticians that I had was Dr. Gary Hoste. He cared for me while he practiced in California. He moved to Florida this year. I know that even if you had the financial resources to go to Florida to be evaluated it would be too hard to endure the travel in your condition. So perhaps if you contact the Carrick Institute they can tell you if there are any Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologists near you. These doctors training in neurology is very specialized and it significantly surpassed the neurology training that chiropractors recieve and they know how to put the information together from their evaluation with more comprehensive functional understanding of the affect of MVA's on neurology than medical neurologists who depend on only what they can see from MRI's, MRA's, CT, etc.

I will let you what my search reveals.Thanks and best wishes Linsky

I haven't tried 'myofacial release' and had never heard of it until you suggested it. What doc specialises in this field?I know for that I am not a psych case, it is the Doc's being intellectually arrogant. If they can't find something, it doesn't exist is their belief. Ironically, here where I live in the Liverpool UK there is a common joke that pervades the 'Walton Center for Neurology and Neurosurgery = "What is the difference between God and a Neurologist? Ans: God is not a Neurologist! Yes, that is their mindset and it is a disgrace. But until I can get proper help, I guess I'm a bit stuck. Thanks for your reply Best Regards Linsky

Thanks for your reply. I am all too well aware that the Doc's think that they are gods.I do however have a very strong faith in our Creator, but would not consider going to a faith healing church or similar. I do however, have implicit trust in our Grand Creator righting the wrongs of all of his people in the very near future. Then, we can live here on a wonderful paradise earth just as was his purpose back in the Garden of Eden. The Earth was, is and will always be our home. Regards linsky
