I have had chronic pain for ten years, since I was 24 years old. I injured my back, and I ended up having a laminectomy and then a cage fusion with bone morphogenic proteins. The pain returned about three years ago when I had another disk herniation above my fusion, I have been to pain management for three years now. I was involved in an accident a few months ago and now I have neck and shoulder pain as well. My question is the numbness and tingling has gotten really bad, and I am worried that they are missing something. I just had a nerve conduction test done but I haven't received the results yet. I have so many spasms from the accident in my neck and shoulder area it hurts so bad. It is also burning right around my shoulder blade. My physical therapist says its from muscle spasms but I herniated a disk in my neck during the accident and I believe it is nerve pain. Should I continue to let her deep massage my shoulder and back area to get the muscle knots out? Can she cause more nerve damage? Also, my right big toe has started becoming spastic, it will litterly freeze in an awkward position for a full minute, and hurt like heck, then it finally relaxes. what does that mean? I have a lot of nerve damage in my legs, the pain management doctor did a radio frequency ablation on 6 of my nerves back in February, do you think they are growin back allready? I can update u you with the nerve test results when I get them but in the meantime I am very nervous about how much pain I am in. I am also feeling weakness in my legs when I am walking or at rest (at night). Thank you kindly.
