hey coffee.. i dont know how long youve been at this with comp... but that is how they roll. I was back at work 7 mnths after my initial accident and they followed me taking pictures and all. i can only imagine what they r doing now that I am going on ssdi. This is an insurance agency and they make money treating us like the criminal and denying us. and unfortunately it got worse with these new laws that started dec 2010. any one seeking treatment on shoulders kneck back and knees they are denied unless medically nessecsary. but good news for me when i recieved a comp authurization form and in it it read a list of reasonable treatment for RSD and what comp must be prepared to do in the future. and this guide line read as if they spoke with an RSD specialist so.... they know and are hopefully more plyable for it. I hope you find this enlightening. good luck to you.
