I hope someone out there can help with a problem that is getting worse & spreading.

In late 2006 I was in a motorway crash and hit central reservation at about 50-60mph. Felt pain later that day and was told its whiplash, was given pain killers. Few weeks later it still not settled & i was getting migraines so saw chiropracter & had about 20 sessions. Felt bit better after this but could no longer continue with chiro as could no longer afford it.

After the accident I started to feel a tingling down the back of my neck. Felt like someone was touching it. Was sometimes painfull like needles going into it. This has been ongoing since the accident but a few months ago it started to happen lower down the spine upto the middle of my back.

Since this I have have started to experience numbness in my arms, hands & fingers and my left heel. I have had torticolis 3 times in the last 4 months. The first time I felt sick & dizzy & felt numbness in my face. This passed within 20 seconds or so.

Doctor has given me strong pain killers to take for torticolis...movement gets better later in the day but still sore.

I would like to know if this could be connected to my whiplash injury in 2006?

I had an orthopedic examination in spring 2010 & was told I have
tendernous over the spinous processes of T6 & T7 vertebrae...his final diagnosis was "strain of cervical & mid-thoracic spine & strain of trapezius muscles". Was told that with physio it would get better within 6 months was told not to lift weights or bend forwards for prolonged periods but this was impossible as I had just had a new baby.

Would really appreciate some feedback as I am really worried about this problem. Have been to see my doctor who has just advised that there are no scans available to get to the bottom of this problem.
