Bulging disc/wc now what do I do?
I am so glad I found this forum, i see alot of ? being asked and good advice following.
so with that, I was injured at work and it took wc and ortho Dr. only 6 months to finally allow me to have an mri. the wc/guy called to let me know he set up another appt with orth dr. a month after mri and that i have no ruptured disc only a bulge and some other signs of aging.....what! then why do i hurt so bad. I walk with pain 24/7 and fear of falling from the worst electrical shooting pain in my back that goes down my leg. it takes my breath away and i have gone to my knees 2x so far i have been able to catch myself and lean on something or someone. they have me on lite duty so i'm still trying to work by wed i hurt so bad i go home crying and knowing I still have thursday and fri to go. I do nothing all weekend just go to church, lunch w/mil,son and spouse and come home take more meds and sit on heating pad or use my tends unit on high. So I guess what I'm trying to ask is (wiping tears away) what should i be doing to get the right treatment or help? I'm in tampa bay area of fl. I have never had anyone close to me deal with wc so... thanks in advance, if nothing else just for letting me share.
