When I was 9 years old I was hit by a car. I fractured both bones in my leg and the paramedics thought I may have had whiplash. My leg received treatment but at the time my neck did not seem to hurt. No x-rays were performed on my neck. After a while, the leg pain dulled down and my neck became a problem. Still, nothing was done about it. Now, 12 years later, I experience frequent neck pain radiating through my upper back and causing me frequent migraines. Is it possible that I did suffer from whiplash and the doctors just blew it off when I complained? Is there anything that can be done to help my problems now?
