Hello to all, i am so glad i found this place. I have read alot of the boards.
I just wanted to introduce myself and thank all who do participate on here. It has given me alot of insight.
I am tina, My medical problems are kinda complex and not all dx'd yet. I was a truck driver, injured on the job. I have been off work now for over 2 months. I am in constant pain of some sort all the time. My new dr had xrays done and it showed degenerative arthritis (cervicle) and Disc disease c6c7. I have done pt, steroids, pain meds. My old dr (theirs) said i could do modified duty. my new dr said no duty at all. The pain is so extreme. My left knee, let thigh (back of it). My neck, constant headaches, my upper, mid and lower back hurt, (one part is always hurting), my right shoulder, arm, forearm, my wrist aches, my thumb aches and fingers feel weird. We are in the process of trying to get me into a pain management dr now. The company is being difficult, they want me to go to GA from MD to do modified duty. They dont understand that riding or driving makes me feel like i am going to die from pain. ANywho, i will see you all on the boards. I have alot to learn still of the medical stuff on this. Oh, and i dont know what is up with this but i have problems urinating now, like i have to really push to go...i know tmi.
see ya all, and thanks again
