Severe pain in back and neck, large, sore flat area on head along with mushy feeling. History of being trampled by horse. No x-ray done. Help

I was trampled by a horse when I was 16. My back and neck were stepped on, along with my right breast and right thigh. I also hit my head in the . I am now 25. A week after the incident i got a ct that came back normal. Now my head has a large flat and very mushy feeling and almost feels sore when it's touched or my hair is in a ponytail or something. People are so grossed out by it. I am in the middle of switching doctors right now, my 1st appt is actually this week. But my old doctor kept telling me it was nothing but would never agree to any further testing. I am a mother of two babies with numerous other health problems and I'm scared that I never got one xray done on my back or neck although my body feels like I'm 70 yrs old and my back and neck hurt so bad at times I just rock myself and cry.. I wanna live for my babies and right now I'm not living the way I feel every single day.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Your symptoms are involving different parts of body which are difficult to explain by one medical problem. As you have crying spell and disturb sleep along with pain symptoms, then your symptoms may be related to excessive health anxiety.

Anxiety disorders can manifest with not only psychological symptoms but with a variety of physical symptoms also like: pain in multiple different parts of body, palpitation, chest heaviness, choking sensation, tremors (shakiness) etc.

As your CT scan was normal after the injury then you should not worry about that. Your current physician also want to reassure you for lack of physical illness. Same time get evaluated by psychiatrist to find out psychological origin of current distress.

Wish you good health and all the best.
