Default Looking for answers. Spinal injuries, neuropathy and new symptoms

At the moment I am really struggling to deal with chronic pain. I was in a car accident which resulted in 4 herniated discs, 4 compression fractures on my thoracic spine and peripheral neuropathy in my feet.

Lately, Ive been experiencing a different sensation in my hands and legs that is similar to the neuropathy in the way that it is numb and tingling, but it doesnt burn like my feet and my neorontin doesnt get rid of it.

My doctor is more concerned about the large amount of panadine forte Im taking than the actual issue itself and I would prefer to fix it rather than take more medication, but I dont know where to start.

Is there a specialist I can see that deals with spinal issues or neuropathy? I'm seeing a physio already and do yoga daily but nothing is fixing it.

Pain killers right now are not working for the pain in every area of my spine or the weird pins and needles. It's turning me into an angry, mean person and I dont know what to do.

Hi Username24

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

I am sorry to hear about what you are experiencing.

You might also like to post in the Spinal Disorders & Back Pain forum (https://www.neurotalk.org/forum22/); members could also make helpful suggestions there.
