Why Do I Have Delayed Pain After a Car Accident?
When you are involved in a car wreck, it is common for pain to appear hours or even days after the car wreck. This is because the initial shock of being in the wreck releases endorphins into your body, which can mask the pain and other symptoms of injuries. Additionally, you have a lot of adrenaline once you are involved in a car accident.
Some of the most common delayed injuries in a car wreck are these:
- Whiplash and Muscle Strains-Symptoms to look for include:
- Reduced range of motion;
- Pain and stiffness in arms, shoulders, and legs;
- Muscle spasms; and,
- Numbness or weakness.
- Concussions-Symptoms to look for include:
- Headaches and loss of balance;
- Blurred or double vision;
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)

It is never too late to seek medical attention after a car accident, but it is better to seek medical attention right away. Your health is too important to put at risk.
