... I didn't want to hijack anyone else's thread by asking too many questions but the C5/6 question thread really got me thinking and I have a couple of question for anyone who has an answer.

... I was a passenger in a severe car accident about 5 months ago, which I thought I was going to fully recover from without any issue. Last month, I bent down and felt something pop in my neck and immediately felt like there was a knife in the back of my neck.

So, if I only knew your symptoms, and then... (25 replies)
