Hi all, Thought I would try and get advice from you all... About 5 years ago my mother was in a minor car crash in which someone drove into the back of her at a red light. I think a bit of whiplash was all that resulted. A few days later she started slurring her words and her hands
were shaking badly. It's normally at its worst early in the morning, and yet some mornings it's absolutely fine... She has had numerous CT
scans, X-rays, blood tests for MS etc, but nothing. She has been to see a neurosurgeon at various hospitals but no one can find a cause to the problem. We believe it has to have been a damaged nerve in the neck... But 5 years on were still no further ahead!? Does anyone know what we can do? It's really depressing her, she cannot write anymore and I fear for her because she still insists on using the car. Any
advice would be greatly appreciated.
