Question Help!

I was injured at work and after going to one of the WC doctors for a few weeks the pain in my back increased but he kept telling me it may take months for the pain to go away. After 2 weeks he would not give me any pain meds saying it was illegal for him to do so.
I asked for a referral to an orthopedic and by the time that came through I was in the process of moving from California to Oregon.
My employer never processed a claim for pay and I cannot get anywhere with the WC doctor they sent me to here. I am unable to work because of the pain and after all the X-rays the doctor says I have a 'perfect back'. I said, 'Oh? How is that? I have scoliosis and a compressed disc. He says, 'hmm, the injury did not cause the scoliosis.' DUH! I have had both for years but you said I have a 'perfect back'. He responded with, 'I guess we need to send the X-Rays to an expert.
Still no help from that.
I do not have health insurance so how do I get medical help and what about the pay?

You might want to look into Coral Calcium. Here is some information on it.
