I have had pain in 3 points of my back after a terrible car

Customer Question

I have had pain in 3 points of my back after a terrible car accident 18 months ago. I think I'm suffering with nerve problems, twinging from shoulder to hand, immense pain in my feet with burning, and leg pain, teeth clenching, pain around eye socket (right) twinges in back, and serious fatigue. I often feel out of breath across my chest, and pins and needles in both arms. After months of visiting the gp for 18 months I'm no further forward. Struggling to cope with the fact that I'm getting no answers and feeling worse. I also feel stiff on a morning as my muscles are clenched even when sleeping, I really struggle to relax.
I hope I can get some answers :(

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Can you please let me know what kind of tests have you had for your problem?
Have you had MRI of your lower back and brain?
Any blood tests?
Kind regards

I've only had an X-ray on middle of back which showed nothing. I've had blood tests which have ruled out arthritis blood tests came out normal but low vid D

X-rays are not good enough.
You must have MRIs of your lower back and brain done to have a clearer look at the bones and discs of your spine and to also have a look at the brain as well.
This will rule out multiple things like multiple sclerosis (MS), disc problems, problems with the bones of the spine (vertebrae) among other things.
So I would strongly recommend that you be evaluated further.
Let me know if you have more questions.
