After doing some tests 3 months ago I was diagnosed with moderate CTS. The doctor said this will be covered by workmans comp.
I called human resources where I am employed and she told me I'm eligible to be paid half of my wage for up to 13 weeks while I'm off due to surgery and recovery after 1 week waiting period.
I told her what the doctor said about workman's comp covering it and
"There's no way you could develop carpal tunnel syndrome in only a year and a half with this company because it's been proven that Carpal tunnel is developed over time. You can turn it in to workman's comp but I will fight you tooth and nail."
Then she said, "You know you really didn't get this by working for us, don't you?"
I told her no, I guess not but it's killing me!
I need surgery bad on my left wrist but I don't have the money to be off work for a month plus pay the bills my insurance doesn't cover.
I don't know what to do. It's getting so painful that I know I need to do something.
I take 100mg of B6 faithfully everyday but I can't tell that it helps any. When the pain seems unbearable on some nights I take Tylenol with codeine and I wear braces on both wrists every night.
I'd appreciate any help that anyone can give me. Thank you
