    Write down every specific about your pain/symptoms, it may change daily, write it down, sometime the answer is found in the way pain manifest itself in your body. You don't have to write a lot, but a summary of the day as you can remember it.
    As they prescribe meds write your reaction, some meds are better for nerve pain, some for bone, some for muscles etc. If you have PT remember the exercises that help, don't try to do things that hurt, they could aggravate what is happening. Some times it takes awhile for answers. I been having (new) issues since 9-2012. Just now getting some answer that make sense, by still do not know the root of the problem

    Initially was rearended in 2009 and had ACDF surgery in 2010. Can't believe it has been going on for so long.
