So I got in a Auto accident on may 30th. Someone rammed me from the back going 70 mph. I was going 10 mph and my car turned 450 degrees before coming to a sudden stop. For a month now I have dealt with neck and back pain. Mostly neck pain that radiated out to my back. Last week after physical therapy, the swelling started going down and I had no more sharp pains. In my neck but I started getting real sharp pains in my head. Left side lasting 20-30 seconds then I would be ok. I am having these about 3 times daily now. The PT this morning said I probably needed a cat scan just to verify that nothing was wrong. The NP this afternoon said there was no way she was going to order a expensive imaging test for 20 seconds of pain. WTF does she work for Gmac insurance? I don't get it. She is acting like I am faking. Me who hasnt been to the doctor since I was pregnant with my kids. Me who has never complained about anything before all of the sudden had all this pain? I am so MAD.
Update: the doctor today thinks I am having seizures. She prescribed anti seizure meds, an EEG and an MRI. :(
