I live in Ohio and have a Self-Insured Employer.
Currently they are not doing any type of treatment at all other than 800 mg of Motrin and some darvocet if I choose to take them (which I really don't like to do). I can feel that things are starting to get worse. My neck hurts more, I am stumbling a bit, and right arm is weaker (I am right handed). What does a person have to do to get the treatment that is needed so they can return to work? How long can this drag on? I am only 46 and have two kids to raise. I did not put the crack in the parking lot and raise the cement 3 inches just so I could trip over it. Heck they have me on camera and I have a slew of witnesses. What more do they want from me?
Thanks for letting me vent. I am sure I will be posting in the depression forum soon as this is really wearing on me.
