I went to my PMD and he thinks I have a whiplash, while I was filling out my symptom update sheet I remembered that I tripped and fell in early Feb. Its been since then I've been dealing with this, after the fall there was no obvious injury just a slow steady increase of symptoms thats why I couldn't figure what I did....duh!
Anyway, the area around C7,8-T1 is very painful on palpation with arm symptoms and I am getting numbness in different area's off and on (C567 fused). He has ordered CS and TS xrays to make sure the Plate and screws are okay and no cracks etc. plus to make sure I didn't cause any damage to the Tspine. Whenever they order xrays and they come back negative they always then order an MRI, I am a little frustrated as to why he just didn't order the MRI to begin with. Of course, I'm not thinking straight so I should just shut up!
Seems like when I coast along and am dealing with the regular pain level I go and do something that makes it unbearable.......of course, when I get through that, I always feel grateful to be back to my normal severe pain vs. unbearable....sick huh? Do you understand what I am saying?
