So in 2006 i was in a severe snowboarding accident where i fractured 6 vertabra. Since the accident i have been in chronic pain. In december of 2011 i was in Colorado and fell bout 8 feet and landed on my back. No immediate difference in pain. When i got back tp maryland after a month or so my pain began to get really really bad. So much so i got to a point where i would consider suicide every single day. I have been to the emergency room twice, been to a few different immidiate care places. And i told them, i have been in chronic pain since 2006, but now the pain is different. Also told the doctors about my fall in Colorado, and told a few of them my back feels like is collapsing on itself ALL THE TIME. I NEED HELP. maybe once or twice they gave me percocet and sent me home. Other times they say take motrin.
So two nights ago i could not take it any more.and i had done some research on my symptoms. I decided from what i read online i had a compression fracture in my spine. Went to the hospital had to tell them, hey i think i have had a broken vertaba for 8 months. they didmt belive me but they did take an xray. And yup compression fracture at t11. Dose anyone else belive i should sue? There is no reason i should have been living in such agony for 8 months. And the doctors would tell me to keep active and do exercise.
Would love any input.
