Car accident, back and neck injury, light headed, blurry vision, dizziness?

Back in the beginning of July, i was rear-ended at a stoplight and was hit very hard, I'm still going through treatments for the back pain, but ever since the accident, almost every time i stand up I have to immediately sit back down because I'm dizzy, light headed, short of breath, and my vision goes completely white. Two nights ago I actually fell and hit my head pretty hard. I just want to know what could possibly be wrong with me?

Hello.

I am sorry for what you are going through, but it is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to offer medical advice or a diagnosis.

You need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment. If cost is a factor, search for a free or low-cost clinic in your area. If it seems like an emergency, go to a local hospital emergency room as they can not deny you treatment.

I hope you can get this diagnosed by a doctor and treated soon.

Hi MissSugarfoot -

Dave has given you great advise, as always. I did want to add a couple of things -

You say you are still going thru treatments - are these being paid for by the persons' insurance that hit you?

You may want to contact an attorney to see what you rights are and also to make sure you are seeing the right kind of doctors. Orthopedic Spine Specialist and Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist are the only ones that can examine, order proper testing(s), diagnose and offer the best treatment plans.

Hope this helps ~~ please keep us posted what you find out ~~

Take care ~~ God Bless ~~
