Hello again, background you've read before:54 yo female. 35 years
You've answered/explained this above before but since then, I was involved into a multi vehicle accident the Tuesday where we where rear ended HARD at full stop. I didn't hit anything in car, air bag didn't deploy, I was wearing seatbelt. no injuries. I had no pain in neck or back or anywhere. Following 3 days a slight headache which is now completely gone. No neck pain. Today, I started feeling slight tingling at T5-T6 area, no extra pain or other symptoms. I've been icing it today. Am I correct thinking just inflamed from the jerk of the collision?
yes will help
yes probably from the jerk, it is possible . and you do have degenerated discs which can cause symptoms of tingling and pain.
I feel icing, local measures can take care of it, once the acute pain is over, then strengthening exercises for the spine will be required.
some medications like pregabalin and gabapentin may help with the neuro symptoms.
hope this helps
