Ill get straight to the facts.

I was shocked 277v fell of ladder at about 4ft high. I dont recall how i landed but when i did "come to" i was on my on my back with hands tucked behind me and i immediately jumped off of them. I had an exit wound on my palm and some pain in my wrist. I gave it some 2 weeks hoping it would just heal on its own. went to a walk in clinic and was told i had a ulnar styloid fracture and was sent home in a splint and referred to hand specialist. I continued with this option because i still had pain. New doctors did mri and i had a tfcc tear along with the fracture which had not healed. so he cleaned up the tear and did a debriment on ulnar bone. After injury I had informed them of pain all along my arm and elbow to tricep. Tingling in fingers some spasmic movements in hand. I have pain along inside and top of fingers. I am an electrician. i did electrical work 4 yrs in navy before this. never had any pain or issues or any problem doing my work. My doc said that this is anotomical and the injury might have exacerbated the injury...He downplayed and well, basically made me feel like this is how i am and its not tied to the wrist injury. I didnt get any symptoms till injury. this was an on the job injury. and i dont want to stick this with the injury unless its because of it. the second visit with the doc he kind of said same thing but said he would advocate for me. I dont want to go with this if he just wants a patient.Anybody have info or recommendations?.......
