Hi, my name is Cassandra I am 20 yrs old. When I was 17 I wrecked a 4/wheeler into a tree and suffered a broken neck c6 & c7 were both broken. Also my left collar bone was broken & I was blind for three days due to the concusion I had. I forgot all memories and didnt know what happened to me or who I was, I didnt even know my family. To this day I still have a lot of trouble with my memorie could that be caused by some kind of long term memorie loss from the concusion? Also I have very bad neck pain, when I sleep I have to lay flat on my back.. if i fall asleep with my neck turned when I wake up the pain is so severe I cant move my neck. Is this a normal thing? My doctor told me I would never be allowed to ride rollar coasters again and said if I get into a wreck or anything my neck is most likly to be injured again.. is this myth or the truth? is there anything out there that can make the pain go away besides pain pills? I dont take them and refuse to because I know how addicting they are. I wore a neck brace for months before they said I could take it off. But they did nothing for my broken collar bone.. && now its sticks out its bigger then the other side and its still sore to the touch after 3 yrs.. is this normal? Is there things that I am not supposed to be doing even after this long like lifting heavy things or anything related to this? Should I see a doctor for my neck once in awhile to make sure its okay?
