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.
This is my story.
Starting back almost three years ago I was getting burning pains down my left leg. I went to my primary doctor, He had me get a mri and found I had a herniated disc in my lower back. So I started getting injections.
Two weeks after my theird one I was moving some equipment at work and all of a sudden I got the most intense burning pain in my left thigh.
Within two hours my middle torso and left leg went completely numb. Went to the emergency room they did a mri and told me to go to a spine specialist.
He told be my numb leg had nothing to do with my herniated disc and sent me to a neurologist. He did every test you could think of at one point had me diagnosed with CIPD.
He could not find a answer so sent me to another neurologist I waited four months to see, every test you could think of nothing.
I told her I was going to go see a brain and spine specialist. She told me good luck. So I went to see them he wanted to do a level three fusion on my lower back but my insurance would only ok a level one which I had done two months ago. my leg and torso are still numb the burning pain is worse than ever.
Was the neurologist right ? No one can really tell me exactly what caused this. I keep getting told it will take time for the nerves to heal.
The pain has me so depressed it's unreal and I don't know how much longer I can hold on to my job. Two years later still in pain and you really can't tell someone how the pain feels they will never know.
