My husband was injured at work. He has been to the doctor and is now in physical therapy and nothing is easing the pain. His doctor says that the MRI and CT don't show anything wrong however the therapist could not believe that he has such poor range of motion but yet they can't find anything wrong. He had lower back surgery several years ago for a ruptured disc and states that the pain he is feeling now is the same. His leg becomes numb and he's been tripping. He's in constant pain and feels like nobody is listening to him and doesn't know where to turn. I was tempted to take him to the emergency room just to see if they could give him something to ease the pain. He wants to work, he wants to play with his children and is tired of telling them "No, I can't". He has requested a second opinion and his back Dr. gets angry. One month he was told it was arthritis, the last visit he had he was told it was degenerative disk. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what rights he has? He doesn't want to go against the system but it's not doing anything for him. He's miserable and there's nothing I can do to help.
