Daily Back Pain after an accident
So, I had an accident on Sep. 27, 2008. I got hit by a car while biking to work. He was at a stop sign and started turning right onto a main road (where there was quite a bit of traffic) and hit me on my left side. I flew off to the ground - well that is what I remember anyway. All I know is that next thing I knew, I was sitting on the road screaming and crying.
Enough about that...
The ambulance took me to the hospital and I was waiting for literally 2 hours for a doctor while being strapped down to a wooden board. The only thing that hurt at the time was me left leg - it felt numb, and as if it was sending out electrodes. When the doctor got there and unstrapped me, he asked if I have a headache (and I didn't), and then asked me to walk for him. He said I was fine and free to go. No x-rays were done, no check-ups, like the police officer suggested, nadda.
So the next day I woke up with a head ache and back pain, and it's been like that every single day since then.
Sometimes the pain gets A LOT worse - and it's not really in any pattern either - the back is mostly hurting in the upper side near the shoulders, and the head all over my forehead. At first I tried the usual Advil and Tylenol, (even the tylenol ultra migraine) and they don't help. Right now, for the past week, it has been a lot worse, worse than it has ever been, my neck started hurting a lot, and my head also started hurting in the back of my head. I've learned to live with the usual pain, but this hurts A LOT, like even more than it ever did when my pain got worse.
I've had a CAT scan done on my head and they have not found anything, and I had a full bone scan done and they haven't found anything either. I have to push my doctor to have me do a test. I got physiotherapy for about a year after the accident, it helped a bit on the day of, but the pain never went away.
I will be 18 in September, and I am about 115 pounds. I'm a pretty active and healthy person, so exercise or stress is not affecting my pain.
I just want to know if any of you experienced what I did, and if you have any suggestions about what I could do.
Thank you so much!
