| | Abuse Victim... Damage To Back/Neck? Opinions please.s
I was hoping to get people's opinion before my doctors appointment next week. I'm 22 and had been a victim of domestic violence for 6 months straight. In October 2008 my husband was arrested for giving me a concussion. The concussion was caused my him grabbing me by the shoulders and slamming me full force repeatedly against a wall. I never went to the hospital for this injury, only got checked over by the police and their team to confirm I had a concussion. Since then I've realized I can no longer sit in an upright position like I used to. There's always a slouch to my posture now even when I'm brushing my teeth I'm all bent over. The two bones on each side of my tail bone stick out much more then before and the bones at the top of my spine also stick out a fair amount now and are sensitive to touch, it causes a fair bit of pain and discomfort on and off.
Do you think I may have recieved further injury then just a concussion? Should I really get this checked out? Thanks.
