Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Cortisone injections--a little honesty please.
I had cervical injections back in May 2010. It is Dec 2010, and I still have side effects that the pain clinic categorically denies exist, so I'm assuming there's some lawsuit issue in admitting this.
I'm concerned because my muscles are still weak, and my skin sags or feels dead in various places far away from the point of injection. I'm tired of reading qualified statements at medical websites like, "cortisone injections can cause softening of the tendons if directly injected". I'd like to know if these or other effects, which I felt immediately after my first 3-week-set of treatment, are permanent or not. Is it possible to suffer permanent nerve damage overall?
