Whiplash on neck, pain, dizziness, headaches, shoulder discomfort. Treatment?

HI there. Over the past 6 years I have had two car accidents resulting in a whiplash injury to my neck. I frequently get problems with pain and discomfort, however, for the last week or so I have had neck pain , dizziness , headaches and discomfort in my shoulder which has gradually moved into the top of my arm. I had an x-ray on my neck a few months ago and there were no signs of any damage.

For this I would suggest that you should go for a repeat x-ray neck both AP and lateral view. And take an anti-inflammatory drug like diclofenac ,because problems like dizziness n headache may be associated with inflammation of a nerve at neck.
