Oh and also do get an attorney to help deal with the auto insurance companies. It is amazing how much more quickly you will get help if there is a lawyer involved.

Reading your post brings back so many pain-filled memories for me. Over a 20 year period I was in four auto accidents and I attribute much of my weight gain cycle to those injuries - and to my attempts to work through them without help.
Here are my recommendations based on past experiences - both good and bad:
Please get to your physician and tell him/her about your continuing pain despite the meds.
Ask if your insurance has a pain management program. Mine was the best thing I ever did for myself.
Ask for referral to a physical therapist and tell that person exactly what activity you can and cannot tolerate.
Sign up for the Chair Exercise Spark team and check out their resources.
When I started this program five months ago I could not stand for more than 2-3 minutes or walk more than 100-200 steps without having so much pain I had to sit down. Now I can walk 1.5 miles without having to stop and sit.
Please do not give up. You will get better. You can find your way to good health with the help of your medical team and your Spark Friends.

Right now you had better just rest, ice and heat. My prayers are with you. Did you see a doctor yet?

Oh no, that sounds awful. My heart goes out to you. I have no idea what to tell you. Do you have a pain management doctor you go to? Logically I would think hot showers would help.

PLEASE HELP! I am so unhappy emoticon . I was all set to start off exercising and had started to do Zumba at home, when I was in a car accident last week! I already have chronic low back pain, and now I can barely walk. I have to wear a 100mg Fentenayl Patch, and I am on Hydrocodone, and muscle relaxers, so all I do is sleep all day now. I had gained weight over the holiday's as it is, but in just this past week I have gain a couple of pounds and I have a bad feeling I can going to gain more. I want to get up and do something but, I am in pain. I too have all the exercise equipment, balls, and machines, and bands, and a membership at the fitness center, but every type of exercise is just too painful at this time. I hope that it will start to subside. Are there any suggestions on what I should do? emoticon emoticon
