What type of doctor should i see?

I was the passenger in an auto accident where we were t boned in the rear passenger side back in the very beginning of October. I started having pain and tingling and numbness in my upper shoulder area as well as pretty bad headaches. so I started seeing a chiropractor thinking it was a natural approch. Well, my head aches have only gotten worse, getting them 4 or 5 times a week. It starts in my shoulders/upper back and radiates into my head. I was sent for mri beginning of December which shows a straight cervical spine (whip lash) and 1-2 mm bugles in disc c5-6 and c7-8. My headaches are so painful that sometimes I even feel nausous. My pcp gave me muscle relaxers but I can't take them surfing the day as I work full time and they put me to sleep and pain pills, but again, I can't take them during the day because it makes me tired and silly, not to mension sick. Anyways, who do I turn to? I'm hearing a lot of people say no chiropractors should work on me while I have bulging disc but besides that, I feel its doing nothing for me!

Help :(

    Go to your regular MD/Physician and tell them what happened, what kind of pain you have and then He/She will send you to a specialist.
