Alright folks, I have a health question for you:
I was in an accident a couple months ago (a car hit my, a pedestrian, while I was crossing the crosswalk) and my back has been thrown off since then.
Recently, I’ve taken to seeing a chiropractor for adjustments and a massage therapist for the muscles.
For the last FOUR DAYS, I’ve had severe lower back pain when my pain was originally in my shoulders. With that lower back pain comes severe nausea to the point where if I eat, I really believe I will throw it all up, even though I don’t. All of this is topped by stabbing pains in my right temple.
Has anyone ever had this kind of pain before? How do you manage it? Did it go away and how long?

@JackiBean: Please go see a doctor, or call your clinic and describe your symptoms to a nurse and see what they have to say; this is not a good place to get medical advice.

@DomesticDiva: Haha, I’m constantly at the doctor’s. My chiro knows all about this and says it will just take time. I’m wondering if there is anything I can do to help relieve the pain because it’s debilitating.
I went in yesterday to see the chiro for an adjustment, I was fine for about 9 hours before the pain set in again.

@JackiBean: Have you had X-rays taken? A friend of mine was getting stabbing pains in her head, and just discovered she chipped one of her vertebrae in her neck!
Also, seeing a chiropractor was something that never worked for me – my muscles weren’t ready for an adjustment, and I’d end up with burning pain afterwards. I much prefer an osteopath who does everything a chiropractor does, but they massage and loosen up muscles before doing an adjustment, and can give you exercises to do at home. I responded much better to osteopathy – it might be something to look in to anyway!

@Deejayelle: Wow!Thank you! I’ll look into that. I’m having similar problems with pain after the chiro visit.
