Doctor

A:   I suggest that you have a comprehensive evaluation by an Orthopedist or spine surgeon that must include exhaustive physical examination and imaging tests, meaning MRI to determine for sure if you are having a spine nerve compression that is causing your symptoms and possibly was aggravated by the recent car accident.
