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.
I am new here. I have been trolling around for awhile to see if anyone else had problems similar to mine. So here goes:
18months ago I went to the dr with numbness on the outside of my left thigh and leg, pain in my lower back and difficulty standing, sitting, moving. He said I have DDD, arthritis and scoliosis. After quitting my job as a cleaner and trying to be kinder to my back it had gotten better. About 3 months ago it has flared up. Stabbing pain AS I sit down. Pain so sharp I often cry out as I sit. I have an office job now and I am afraid sitting 8 hrs a day is as bad as the cleaning job.I feel ok in the morning but by the end of the day I am walking stooped over, stiff and in pain. I had no numbness until today. I started going to a chiro thinking that may help. I had my second adjustment yesterday and this morning woke up with the numbness back. He made it worse I am afraid. So no more of that. I don't live near the dr that made the original diagnosis. I guess a trip to a reg md is in order. What tests should I ask for? I have never had an mri, just xrays. Thanks for reading this! I appreciate your opinions!
