What is the best course of treatment? I'm 24, female, no prior neck injury I was involved in a rear-end car accident two weeks ago. We were hit at high speed while we were stopped at a light. 24 hours after the initial ER visit (discharged for whiplash),

Wow.: Wow. I'm sorry to hear of your injury, and understand how what appears to be conflicting opinions make you a little nuts, especially when you're in pain (and numbness).

It's not "right" versus "wrong" here, though. Your gp seems to be looking to treat you conservatively with steroids, probably in an effort to shrink any swelling in the discs which are pressing up on nerves, which is causing the pain and numbness. Surgery on cervical discs isn't something you rush into, at least not without exhausting all conservative measures first. I would certainly let your gp know of any side effects the Prednisone is causing. You may also want to try a course of acupuncture, which works particularly well for this sort of thing. If you continue to show no improvement, by all means, get the mri. You may also want to consider a steroid injection into the disc (sounds worse than it is).

Whiplash can be an exasperating problem, and it may take a number of treatment modalities to get you relief.

Good luck. ...Read more
