I was in an rear end accident this morning when I was hit unexpectantly. At first my nerves were so shot I didn't feel anything. A little while later my lower back and legs started hurting and my neck a little. I know when you are in an accident there is a tendency for whiplash. I know it will only be worse tomorrow...so...should I go ahead and get looked at so I can possibly get some anti inflammatories so should I just let it ride itself out?
I just had emergency surgery a little less than a month ago for something else and I honestly DON'T want to go sit in an ER again.
Get it seen to ASAP. It may be ok but do you want to take that risk? I understand your aversion to waiting rooms, the hours are like months, but you can't take chances here. I left an accident untreated 30 years ago and am suffering for it now.
