See specialist: Persistent nausea after a collision can result from several causes. A neurologist or physiatrist can rule out concussive symptoms vs other head injury. Depending on where the pain is, persistent muscle spasm may be a contributing factor.
Dr. Carol Van der Harst

Severe whiplash can involve ligaments and cause muscles spasms resistant to muscle relaxers. The problem is the depth and complexity of injury causing muscles to contract in protective fashion. This can be a long process to recovery. Therapies and working with a Rehabilitation specialist may require months. Seek Prolotherapy treatment if spasms remain limiting for 4-6 months.
