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 had my first L5/S1 esi a few weeks ago.. I started having bad symptoms after it such as headaches, stiff and numb right hip, and cramping in my right leg and foot. After I told the the doctor who did my shot the last time about my symptoms when I was in to get my second one, he told me he didn't want to do it yesterday. I broke down and told him I have tried everything I could. He told me to give him a minute. He left the room and came back in and he agreed that I have done eeverything possible.. Massage therapy, physical therapy, etc. He agreed to do the shot, but said after the 7-10 days, if it doesn't work, I need to call and cancel my third shot and make an appt with my actual doctor in that office and see what other procedure options are on the table. He said I shouldn't be having these problems at my age. Instead of doing the shot where he did the last time, he went in from a different direction.
I was wondering if anybody else had these experiences and if I should be worried... What other options would they give me?
