I was in an accident this morning. Was driving and got hit on my front tire area. I whiplashed pretty good and I'm frozen stiff in my entire cervical and shoulder area. I went to hospital and had a full xray of spine. No breaks so they sent me home with scripts for vicodan and a muscle relaxer. Meds are helping a lot. Told me to follow up with my docs. Of course I am very worried about new damage as I realize the xrays will show only fractures. The absence of major neuro issues like numbness and incontinence rule out only catastrophic disc issues. I'm afraid of what might be lurking under the whiplash. On impact I felt major pain across my left neck-shoulder area. Tonight I am just a mass of sore muscles.
I'll call my neurosurgeon on Monday. I am drop-dead lucky considering but I sure do wish I could catch a break for my poor spine. SQ
