Can swollen muscles in the neck cause tingling in hands, feet, arms, and legs?

Posted by goodgirl1976

I was in a car accident on October 31, 2008.  I was struck in the front drivers side while turning left into a laneway.  The other vehicle tried to pass me while I was turning left and struck me, it was going about 90 km at the time.  I injured my neck, back and right hip.  I had x-rays done at the hosptial but it showed nothing.  Now for the past two months the right side of my neck has been swollen and I have tingling down my arms, hands, legs and feet.  I was given Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day for the past three weeks and it doesn't seem to be doing anything.  I am also having pain up my neck into the back of my head as well as some down my back but it does not hurt to push on the back of my neck.  So I am wondering if the swelling it causing the tingling or if I should have further testing done?
