I was rear ended 4 years ago, and have been suffering ever since. I saw that the vehicle coming behind me was not going to stop so I was looking left and right for a way out. There was no way out so I had turned my head to the right when the impact hit. I was totaly stopped when this happened, I had low back pain at first then around 3 days later neck, shoulder pain. I have had 2 MRI's and 3 years of PT. No one seems to know how to help me, I get horrible migranes because I have neck spasams. I take diazapam for this which I think helps some, but the migranes are almost daily now. Sometimes my right arm will hurt really bad then feel funny. My MRI showed spurs, but not much else. They put me on Nortryptiline to try to stop my migraines, it has not worked. I can't afford another MRI since I am still paying for the second one. I have yet to go to court to try to get my medical bills paid and my pain and suffering. It will be almost 5 years till my court date. The migraines are horrible and almost daily now. They did give me Maxalt but I had my right arm hurt then numbness so the Dr. thought that could mean I could have a stroke from the medicine so I can't take any more. But my arm still does that so I am not sure it was from the medicine. Please help, pain is so depressing and my life has totaly bben ruined by this.:mad:
