Dr. Hwang Patient Stories: Dizziness After a Car Accident

A Patient had previously been in a minor car accident six weeks ago, leading to only slight knee pain. I asked if they had any neck pain, and they were surprised I asked before answering, "No".

Why did I ask this?

Because car accidents can often cause whiplash and other unpredictable symptoms that show up later.

A symptom that appeared was the reason the patient came to see me: they had symptoms of dizziness everyday in the late afternoon, accompanied by extreme grogginess.
