Neck, back, leg pain with dizziness

HI, I have been having leg, neck and back pain associated with dizziness for over a year now. I have been for bloodtests, MRI of my head and seen an ENT but nothing could be found. Both my GP and ENT diagnosed me with stress and anxiety disorder. I am not so sure that this is the right diagnosis. I have been taking Xanor for the last 4 months and it helps a bit but my neck, back and right leg still hurst every so often. I have also been involed in two minor bumper bashings in the last 3 years and I don''t know but maybe my symptoms can be caused from delayed whiplash. I also notice that closer and during my monthly period I get axtra dizziness. Please help!

Hallo Daleen
I really think that you should also have a thorough evaluation by a physiotherapist - you can definitely have chronic muscle spasm or trigger points due to the whiplash injuries which can cause chronic neck and backpain with referred pain in the arms and legs.
