After car accident chronic pain in neck and shoulder MRI's show nothing:(
I came across this site today. I'm in my early 30's. Unfortunately, I had a car accident at the end of 2014.I had no issues until I got into the accident. Since the accident I wen through pain management, many chiropractor sessions, injections, cervical spine injections, trying many types of medications. I went through numerous physical therapy sessions and also went to sports medicine doctor. I was at a spine and brain specialist today and told me he doesn't see any problems with my neck and shoulder. I have been battling with chronic pain over a year. It is unbearable without taking any medication. The only thing that helps me to bear pain is Tramadol. l. I get very tired and feel nausea all the time. Physical activity makes my pain worse which makes me frustrated because I used to be very active before the accident. Do you have any suggestions for me? It is frustrating that MRI doesn't show anything really. I feel like an old lady. Many days just want to rest and get through the day. This is not life. What are your experience with discography? or CT myelogram? How about facet joint injections? Do you have any suggestions for me?
