Re: hi guys.

Tracer, I can understand why you feel the way you do I have been on this roller coaster ride myself for close to 6 yrs and know it is NO fun.
I wouldn't give up I would be looking at other drs and gettting at least another opinion.
At times I feel like just throwing the towel in but then you can come here and get the support of others and it helps.
Hope you can get results and move on with life soon keep us posted to how your doing.

I Went On My Own Without Comp. And Got My Own Second Oponion And May Be Able To Pursue Other Avenues Of Treatment. Don't Trust Workers Comp. Nurses And Doctors Totally. There Job Is To Get You Back To Work As Soon As Possible. Please Explores Other Avenues For Your Own Piece Of Mind!!!! Best Of Luck On Your Recovery!!!
