In the immediate and long-term after a car crash it is possible to experience your life quality diminished by a myriad of physical conditions whose symptoms are debilitating and intense but the exact causes remain a mystery.
Finding the root of your issues is all the more difficult because your frequent discomforts are all over your body, particularly in your neck as well as the. Furthermore, the moments of intense pain can appear and disappear at random or befall you continuously, an uneasy feeling that occurs frequently. There are times when you’re exhausted, sleepy, and the pain is throbbing.
It is difficult to identify the root of the problem, and unfortunately the same is true for your physician. Results from your latest set of tests show that everything is in order for you. But you’re aware.
You may be among the more than 50 million Americans with thyroid issues that have not been diagnosed due to musculoskeletal injuries. More common than most people think an underperforming or ineffective thyroid may negatively impact your energy levels, metabolism mood, functioning of your brain, immune system and may further cause the physical discomfort you experience. General musculoskeletal pain as well as neck tension in particular are two most common symptoms and the causes of thyroid issues. Here’s how.
In essence, neck injuries can cause thyroid problems and make you susceptible to a wider array of physical conditions. The thyroid that is affected can become the reason for more physical discomfort. In short, musculoskeletal injury creates body pain and damages the thyroid, causing an increase in musculoskeletal pain. This is why the cycle of debilitation continues.
A study conducted a few years ago revealed connections between car accidents , thyroid damage and hypothyroidism. The drivers who were injured in car crashes discovered some time later that the collisions damaged their thyroid glands, in turn creating problems which remained long after bones were healed. While healing, the people who suffered from the condition experienced intense pain which seemed to appear from the ether. Even more disturbingly when their physicians did thyroid tests, their results were normal. The doctor and the patient were at a loss. Thus, the doctor gave the patient pain killers. They only mask the pain, but did not get to the root of the issue. In fact, treating the trauma that is caused by injury and not evaluating the detrimental consequences of trauma to the thyroid does not automatically eliminate the pain. People who have experienced long periods of painkillers and other treatments targeted at their physical injuries could suffer from chronic discomfort for a long time, since the root cause may be undiagnosed, subtle thyroid condition that is triggered by the trauma that caused the initial injury.
Fortunately, such scenarios don’t need to be the norm. Depending on painkillers and other medications that reduce symptoms and don’t solve the root of the issue isn’t the only choice. The first step to identifying and fixing the root of the problem could involve identifying and going through an additional round of tests and evaluation.
