Continuous back spasm, after bad accident

I am 14yrs old, and I need answers..... I was in an accident one week ago involving someone landing on my head and leaving me in pain. I visited the doctor and he said the muscles along my spine were in spasm. I went camping over the weekend and it was sore but bearable. The day after I came back I was getting these jerks every 30-40 seconds, but they got worse and more frequent... The next day they were really bad and a lot more severe. I was literally being bent over by these jerks, they were very painful so I stayed home from school. It seems that the only way to stop them is to lie down and stay still. I need help because it is very sore and my parents think I am putting it on to skip school or something, because they cannot find any situations where this has happened to others, I need help please

It is common to have spasms in your spine after an injury.  If its now more than a week after your injury and the spasms are continuing and/or you are in severe pain, my suggestion would beto head back to your dr. For a more thourough exam and possibly muscle relaxers.

Be well,

With your parents, be clear and insistent about your complaints.

If the spasms and pain are this severe, then you need to see the doctor again and be clear about your symptoms. The doctor needs to rexamine you, xray your cervical spine, and make a diagnosis.
