Hi All,
I have a few questions that some of you may have the answer for. I am still not myself after being rear ended. Still dealing with sever headaches from time to time where I want to take a pick ax to my neck and gouge out an area and general muscle spasms, and tightness in my neck especially with bad weather or overdoing it. My lower back is tight and I can't lift heavy items anymore. There are times that I feel the L5 or SI joint is out and I am swinging my right leg. The worse is the pain, pins and needles and numbness I feel. I am bitter and angry that I have these issues from the car accident. I would be back to my active self if it weren't for the accident. I do try to look on the positive side, between there are times I can't. I didn't go to a family wedding because I thought the driving there would be too much and then I would be miserable during the reception and then I would just have to drive the 90 minutes home. Sorry for venting and complaining. Generally I am a very positive person.
My motto is look good on the outside when the inside feels like crap.

Pain in the leg in difference spots. Who knows which level it may come from?
Pain in the front upper leg?
Pain in the lower leg in the back?
Numb toes (middle and ring toe)?
