Nerve -back pain, hip pain, leg pain after auto accident- rear ended
I was in an rear end collsion type auto accident late Feb 2011. I thougt I just pull some muscles and would get better quickly. I am now 5 months in and have seen the ER doctor (no xrays, just meds) then to family doctor for more meds , MRI, xrays and PT after MRI came back normal. After starting PT pain got worse and had to stop. Sent to Ortho and was given 2 rounds of ESI ( epidural steriod injections) with little relief. Injections only took away part of the pain and would wear off within a couple of weeks.Attempted PT again after 1st sep of injections. I returned to Ortho after being in bed for 3 days on Loritab, Soma ,then changed to Butrans pain patch for next two days before appointment with doctor. Was told that imaging place I had MRI done did not have the best reputation. I felt the MRI was not read correctly as I broke my tail bone with I was about 12 yrs old and no mention on the MRI report of prior break to tail bone. Doctor asked that I get the films and I did same day. Was told they would call me after the doctor re-read the MRI himself. I have heard nothing from the doctor at this point and it has been 2 days. Doctor stated may need nerve test done by Neuro and possible re-do MRI. I have severe pain in mid back, lower back hips. Pain going down legs to knee area. Losing mechanics of legs. Feel like I am walking in sand up to my knees sometimes. Not sure what to do at this point and wonder if I should just go see a Neurosurgeon or Neurologist due to nerve issues. I am so lost and need to be guided in the right direction. I have good health insurance and can go to any type doctor I need.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
