Hi Alan, I'm sorry that you are not doing great. Boy you would think you were my idential twin or something! I know about feeling awful after "a second accident". I didn't think I could feel any worse after the first, but I did. I did make every think that happened from the first one worse. I'm sorry to say that to you but it was true. I could barely walk, and when I did the pain was unbelievable! At times my legs whould just give out from under me. It was really scary.
So tell me what are/is the doc doing for you if anything? Or are they waiting to see the "new damage"? I know you can't possibly be on any different kinds of pain meds than before because you couldn't be in any more pain if you wanted to. But we both know that to be false don't we? Have they just uped your meds to more or have they given you something stronger?
When are you going for your MRIs? Do you know yet? Or are you waiting on WC? Is this accident considered WC? It shouldn't be? They should be two different things. If your first one was a car accident why aren't you going thru your car insurance? Is it because your out of work? Can the two be combined? All this stuff confuses me sometimes.
Anyway I know you'll keep me posted. Hang in there, you'll be OK. Sometimes it just takes time. And believe me I know. I've been the same but that hopefully it is about to change! Be well
