Phystrist agrees gives traction & pt and pain meds
Last 3 weeks and moving back the pain seems worst
I was in the ER a few weeks back because my whole left side went numb my hand was so weak I couldn't hold a 4 oz cup of water the ER doctor gave me a iv of morphine and Valium she then gave me a prescription for Percocet and Valium and referred me back to the Neuro doctor who said pt is not going to help & that I may have to live with this pain.
I need help my left hand is so weak I am constantly dropping things I have constant pain and numbness and I am just got insurance where I didn't have it before so my phystrist is telling me that with no insurance this takes place so I am glad for the insurance now
