I have a question about Upper or mid back injuries (ANY help asap would be Greatly appreciated)
I was involved in an accident 6 months ago where I was knocked unconscious with a head concussion and ruptured L5, S1 according to the MRI among other injuries.
The thing is, when I was laying in the Hospital bed my legs and ARMS kept going numb and asleep no matter how they adjusted the bed and they couldn't tell me why it was happening. Later on I found out the legs was because of the "L5 S1" but a lot of the same pains that I feel in my legs I feel in my arms. Especially a Burning/ cold/ pain going down UNDER my arms. Besides the obvious lower part of my back My neck especially a spot on the left of my neck that hurts/ has a strong ***** and a place in the middle/lower part of my back that zaps me with pain if I lean my torso out or in and at times it's hard to breathe.
My hands have spazzed out on me, it starts with my thumb and my whole hand gets numbish & tingly and my hand jerks in like I've stuck my finger in a light socket. I have random "sting" spots under my arms and in my fingers (like I do in my toes) that are very painful. Aside from that it, it feels like there's water just running down my back and at times water drops on my arms and painful tingles on my arms and in my torso, sometimes my arms are numb like they're in a blood pressure cup and I wake up with my arms and legs asleep.
Iv'e been told I have nerve damage but not where or anything about it and nothing has shown up on their tests for anything but the lower part of my back. I've heard about other tests like a Myelography? Any comments other tests that may help me find out what's going or just some advise on this would be sooo appreciated. Could this just be whiplash??? I've been let know my time is running out finaincially for solutions PLease, I'm a 26 year old female that was very active before, I'm concerned and I really need your help...THANK YOU so very much.
