I had a serious rollover car accident in 1994 to which I broke my left scapula,and of course whiplash from my head riding a ditch at 55 mph twice in a softtop tracker. I have had 3 whiplashes since in other mvas, however, in the years since this accident I have developed neuropathy in my right arm that is getting worse every day, I have also strained my right shoulder 7 times since that accident in addition to very bad neck pain causing all sorts of interesting symptoms, here goes: severe headaches 3-4 a week, parasthesia to my face, stiff neck, the muscles are just bound up, tinitus, very painful burning muscles in neck and shoulders, ocipital pain, seeing what I call fireworks when I close my eyes, eyeball twitches when I close my eyes that are painful and make sleep difficult, severe weakness numbness to right arm, very little to no sensation in right upper quadrant of my body, unable to hold objects in my right arm, severe muscle spasms inbetween L4 L5, having to literally tell my arm what to do I have to really think about it, blah blah blah I could go on and on. The lyric that was prescribed 2 years ago I said no to, I did not like the way it made me feel OTC isn't cutting it anymore. I have to go to a clinic due to lack of insurance, I'm wondering if anybody has any advice I go in 2 weeks.

  • try the lyrica again sometimes when I take a med and it doesnt work well with me if I stop taking it for a while at least a month and try again it does better. Or if the lyrica does help with the pain but causes nauseia they have anti nauseia meds ect have to chose what you want no pain or bunch of pills! Or ask bout Neurostimulator!I'm sorry I realize that I put I hve muscle spasms between L4 L5 it's actually T4 T5, oops!!
