Thanks so much for your reply pebblebeach3
I didn't expect one so soon nor one so informative.
I'm 26 years old and was attending college prior to the accident.
To answer your question about the accident exacerbating problems,
this may be possible, but while also creating several new severe ones.
I have a constant pressure in several areas all day long.
My mid - neck, upper back area, mid back and left shoulder blade areas
My mid neck area feels pressured as if its being pushed forwards
There is a constant radiating pain at this area that travels outwards like a circle in the mid upper back area
All over my back there is a constant bubbling - tingling feeling
I have trouble breathing also as there a pressure on my left side of back and lower back, lumbar area.
The left shoulder blade area has a pressure that is momentarily slightly relieved if
i stretch the shoulder backwards and it 'cracks' but this pressure builds up quickly again
Along the c7 area , there is a crackling feeling that is painful so im trying to restrict any movement here.
Tingling down the arms and shoulder blades, along with weakness on my left arm side
I'm trying to keep still a lot as any movement creates a cracking sound with a short knife like stabbing feeling. When in bed the cracking stabbing feeling occurs the most when i'm turning
A number of times sitting down i have had numbing left to the spine area, across the whole upper back, when leaning forward whilst sitting it feels as if im wearing a cold wet t-shirt, maybe this is a trapped nerve/nerves ?
I have always had lower back pain , some days worse than others but have coped .it seems now that this is the result of the adolescent epiphysitis
When i seen my doctor about the mri results he stated that nothing was wrong and it was only spasms so consider going to physio . Upon leaving his office & researching the results on the report and going back to him he changed his mind when he actually read the report in front of me.
I have an appointment coming up with a Orthopedic Surgeon which i had to fight with my doctor to get. I'm worried a bit now that i haven't given myself a chance to heal as best as possible since i wasn't given a brace support to wear from the hospital. I have read recently that the hospital should have given me a brace for the compression fracture . Its been 2 months that i've gone without one.
Im taking celebrex, diazepan and paralief - celebrex is anti inflammation and the diazpan are muscle relexants.
i dont find much relief at all
Thanks for your help
