Hello. I am new to this. In august I was assulted at work by a client. He hit me and pushed me...causing ne to hit hard against a toilet bruising severla parts of neck and back. I have been in non-stop pain since then. I went to p.t. but that sisnt help. There are some days that I cant' even move. about 2 weeks ago my Dr. had a mri done of my lumbar region only and found i had herniations on L4 and L5 and that I had a buldge on L3 (I think.) my problem is that my Dr. States I should be feeling better and that my recovery is to slow. I have major pain in my neck and between my shoulder blades in my calves and the top of my feet. My Dr. isnt listening to me and workmans comp. is not approving a MRI of my whole spine. I also have lots of numbness on my bottom (perrinal area) Does anyone one have any suggestions on decreasing pain, convincing my Dr. to refer me to a specialist, or what is wrong with my back. I am frustrated and depressed. This whole injury has been hard on me and my family. I did just make an appt. w /a lawyer to see if he could help me get the treatment I need.
