Has anyone experienced this or have any advice?
Help! I recently showed a Negative MRI report and my WC doctor has released me back to full duty. I am constantly in pain and my overall quality of life is dramatically diminished. I "was" diagnosed with a thoracic sprain, and since the MRI was clean and showed no correlation between my vertebra and the pain I experience, my WC doctor told me "his hands are tied" and HAD to release me back to full time duty. He also could no longer provide me with medication.
I have been struggling with debilitating pain for over 2 years and no one seems to be able to diagnose or help me. I have sought physical therapy, paid "out of pocket" for chiropractic care, and nothing seems to work. I have seen 2 primaries, 2 WC doctors, 4 specialists and I am still undiagnosed.
A physical therapist was convinced the pain I have is a result of my left scapula being three inches higher than my right. I walk tilted to one side and have severe neck pain with constant headaches. However, neither my WC doctor, or my primary will approve more than two weeks of physical therapy, or provide me with ANY medication.
I attempted to go back to my primary and receive treatment from him, but he is now convinced I am a drug seeking patient. Him and his staff are now rude and standoffish with me and "hurry" me out the door. I am frustrated, in pain, and seem to have nowhere to go. Does anyone know a good doctor in the Orange county area who may finally be able to help me? Thanks!
