I was in a a car accident 3 days ago and my upper eye lid started twitching about an hour after the accident. I was stopped & sitting at a red light when a lady slammed into the back of my vehicle doing about 40mph. I was hit hard, but was wearing my seat belt & did not hit my head on anything.
I am a 42 year old female who has always had sore shoulders, I assumed everyone had sore shoulders/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I was in a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>car</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>accident</span> 20 years ago where I rolled a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>car</span> on a mountain and was in a lot of pain, but being young and stupid didn't tell anyone and never got it checked out.

Has there been a change in the color or temperature from the time just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>car</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>accident</span> to now? Are you saying that some of the painful areas have become "more" stiff than they were initially?

A year ago, on my way driving to work, i had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>accident</span>. The guy was trying too fast hit the rear of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>car</span> when i have made a complete stop. As of a result, i had a dics bulge at L4, L5 and it pinches against the nerve. It shoots all the way down the right leg. I've got three epidurals and it's much better. It's hard to imagine how tough life would be, how to deal with pain for years to come. I just hope that it won't get much worse.....

I went to emergency and they made sure I could move the neck and sent me home. For 6 months after the accident I suffered headaches with the same pattern.
However, about 6 days ago I was involved in a very bad car accident that has left me with stitches in my ear, many bruises and abrasions, and I have also had much stomach pains. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>accident</span>, I had noticed that I was very sore and very bloated in my lower stomach area (right where my seat beat was, so maybe it was just from the bruising from the belt?).

2 years ago, I was in car accident in which my left knee hit the dash during impact.

Both vehicles were totalled, and I turned down pills both in the ER as well as afterwards. I know to some here, it sounded silly that I did this -- but I did what I had to do to keep going down the right track. It's almost as though life was testing the both of us. The woman who hit me was drunk as a skunk and had Oxycodone in her system.

She referred me to an Orthopaedic surgeon who suggested traction, which I did for a total of 4 months.

I also have been experiencing this fizzing sensation in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> and head, and it mostly concides with hunger and happens <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>after</span> my stomach growls. I have also had a twitching in my left eyelid. My wife has also had this for many years.
