a physcian can only recommend and give advice; it's always upto the patient whether to take it.
Pain can be a sign of healing. Talk to your doctor, they will know if there have been signs of improvement in your condition.
You can also request a consultation or second opinion.

I understand that . I have these like shocks in my head that were only happening like once a day and now there are happening up to 10 times . I am definitely going to talk to him.

There mayb be something else going on...talk to him ASAP.

No they happen after pt . After my injury they were happening about once a day. The evening after my first pt which was mild pt if u ask me I had about 6 of them. I went to pt again today and told the lady what happen and she said that sometimes that happens. I also had increase pain and a really bad migraine which i have been getting since injury . I didn't sleep the night before . We did a little bit and it hurt so she put me on electrodes I guess its called . Didn't really help.

I got for a shot in my neck in the morning . Been trying to get a hold of my doctors nurse to tell her about this and see about my approval for the phsc doctor . She hasn't got back with me . I'm hoping to hear from her tomorrow because that when she usually makes her call is Friday .

My injury is herniated c5-c6 disk . Concussion and Occipital neuralgia . If i didn't tell you . During pt i also had burning in my arm and pain in shoulders blades . The pain is there and burning rarely go away but were hurtning more during and after pt.

You may need more testing to find out what else is happening.
I Would be cautious about how much pt is being done until you hear more from the doc.
Taking it slow now will not be critical to your overall recovery so no need to rush the pt.

Yup stopping the pt until they do some testing is good. A lot of medicine is trial and error.
