I got into a car accident yesterday and nothing was really hurting but today I'm hurting really bad in my neck and back.

The car accident was my fault

No I haven't had the chance to go to the doctor
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago
It’s common to have neck and back pain a day or two after a car accident. If you can’t be evaluated by a doctor today, you can try Tylenol or ibuprofen as well as alternating ice and heat for 10 mins at a time and then be seen in an Urgent Care tomorrow if the pain is persisting.Does that help answer your question?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
