Well I do not know what I should do.
I had a head injury back in Feb. I was in the hospital for 8 days in March.
This was a work related injury.
I was hit in the face by a falling box while my head was tilted back as I was handing other boxes to a employee on a ladder.
They are fighting any treatment and time loss etc.
At my first Dr. at Nextcare, I was sent back to work with 20 pound limit and to get x-rays. At follow up appointment 1 week later stated there was swelling and limit to 5 lbs, with no over head reaching, or pulling, pushing and breaks ever 120 minutes. 2 weeks after being hit in face I was in the hospital as I could not walk. I was driving to work and got a wierd headache not like the ones I have 24/7. I had a shooting pian down my spine and top of my thighs. I called the Dr. and they said go to ER before I got there I was so weak I could not walk.
When I was released from the hospital 8 days later I was told in writting to follow up with in 1 week with my primary care Dr. (do not have one because WC Insurance adjuster canceled him). A Neurologist (had a IME from Insurance Neurologist a week ago) I made an appointmet to see my own but WC Insurance cancelled that as well.
Was told to see a Spine DR. Could only see the insurance Spine DR. He states not work related, The WC case manager and this Spine Dr. broke the Patient Dr. privacy act by going in the exam room with me and standing behind me, She was there when I arrived and had already spoke with the DR. His report was even false in several areas including I walk with a limp. I was in a wheelchair and could not walk at the time. I got an attorney who never returns my calls or emails. I do not get any time loss so no income since March.
I was told by Nextcare, the Hospital, and the spine Dr. that I need a Neurologist but still have not seen one. Was also told to go to Physical Therapy, and pain management clinic, all which WC insurance will not allow.
I have had 6 MRI's. I read in MRI reports I have disk bulges at C4-5 and C5-6. There was a moderate Central Canal Stenosis at the level of C5-6 due to 5mm diffuse disk bulge, which efaces the cerebrospinal fluid signal, both anterior and posterior to the cord. (what ever that means) On the Spine Dr. report his review of the MRI's stated that I have disk space narrowing primarily at C5-6, less at C4-5. There is an abutment up against the spinal cord without signal changes. (what ever this means) Then adds need a Neurologist due to very diffuse nonspecific complaints to include extrimity.
I had my Independent Medical Exam last week. That I have Post dramtic stress Disorder. that was in April. Per my Attorney in a letter to me "per the Spine Dr. report Unfortunately he did not find anything from an orthopedoc perspective and reccommened the IME. I do not think the evaluation will be truly independent but will wait and see. I will contact you once I receive his report then we can decide what further action to take with regard to medical treatment."
In the mean time I have constant headaches and migraines, my eyes are sensitive to light off and on now. I feel nauseous and light headed most of the time, My right hand and right big toe goes numb. My entire left leg goes numb and I have a stabbing burning pain in both thighs off and on and 2 fingers on the left hand as well as 3 toes on the left foot also. I have some bladder leakage now. My vision is getting worse. I have the shakes and it gets worse as the day goes on. Peolpe that are around me ask how food makes it in my mouth I shake so much at times. I use ice packs on my neck and head. Most of my pain seems to be in the base of my skull and moves over my head to my face. I was in a wheel chair for 3 weeks and then used a walker to walk. I still cannot walk more then about 100 yards. then I get so lightheaded, dizzy, and weak my legs want to give out and I feel like I am going to vomit and pass out. I have no pain meds so live on Advil. And I keep a medical daily log and I am getting worse. Can they deny me medical care??? should I call the media for help???
Please help me. I do not know what to do???????????:
