Hi guys, I am looking for any info or advice. Please =)

Here are my symptoms:

*Headache (in the back of my head)
*Right arm numbness, burning, and constant pins and needles feeling
* neck pain( mostly around c5-c6) more dominant on the right side.
* When my arm has the burning sensation I get slightly dizzy and nauseous.
* Shoulder falls asleep

Here is what happened:
I was in a car accident last August(2012) in which I was a passenger in a car that was rear-ended.

About Me:
In 2009 I previously fractured my c6 but got it resolved(i never had surgery, but I had no problems until now). I am only 23 years old, and healthy.

Treatment/Imaging:
* Had x-ray ( showed nothing)
*Had CT ( everything was clear)
* had MRI (neuro said "nothing jumps out at me"- but muscle knots and spams were visible.)
* Went to PT the first 5 months after the accident- no improvement.
*taking 3 flexiril (10mg)/day- no improvement
Had a EMG/nerve conduction study( no pernament damage was reported)
*Have not returned to work and have been taking it easy

Now:
My neuro has told me to start tapering of my muscle relaxer as he feels that it will take time to heal, or could be a chronic condition from here on out for me. My primary care doctor agreed.

I am still having all the same symptoms, still in pain, and I am told that it will take longer for "it"-(whatever "it" is) or this is how "it" is going to be. I am hoping for advice on how to manage the pain/weakness, what to do, what could be happening or going on, or just any info or advice in general. I was going to apply to nursing school last fall until I had the accident and now my life has been put on hold and altered. Please share any info you know or any advice, it would be appreciated! =)
