Hi, new to site call me butterbean. Back around the end of May this year, started having pain in L/shoulder arm and hand. On 14 June got a apt with PCP doc. Told him what was going on, he didn't seem to concerned and reluctantly ordered neck x rays. He looked at x rays said just a muscle strain and sent me home. Fast forward 3 weeks I get a letter saying go back to see him problem with x ray. By now web in between L/thumb and first finger dished in bad, loss of strength arm and hand. severe pain and numbness from shoulder to two small fingers L/hand. 8/5 finally get back into see PCP doc, he calls a spine doc who says I need further studies.
I had to check with my last surgeon to see if I could take a MRI because of lumbar hardware. Finally get a MRI on 8/23. Now have been e-mailing Dr daily to get results of MRI. He shows no concern about muscle wasting getting worse or loss of use of arm.
Am I wrong to be worrying about this muscle wasting? I know from past experience that it will take a very long time to get arm and hand function back. Is it time for me to complain to insurance company for help. Please let me know, any help would be appreciated.
