I'm in almost constant pain despite taking a good amount of medication.
I had a pre existing condition (cervial and lumbar disc damage) and then another motor vehicle crash took place when coming back from a business trip which resutled in additional damage... I was in a car for hire when coming back from the airport and was hit by two other vehicles. I don't have an attorney and have been trying to work with my employer. and the workers compensation insurance company. It has been six months with the workers compensation doctors and now they are saying I have fibromyalgia.
I'm trying to get relief from the pain and want to find a good doctor in California that can help me get back to where I was... I have not lost any paid-time but have used some vacaition time. I'm falling asleep all the time but not feeling well-rested - I'm not sure if this is due to medication or the FM; I'm being told this is part of the condition. I bought some books to read up on the condition but just can't figure out what to do - if this is as good as it gets then I'm not going to be able to continue working - i'm just too exhausted and can't keep a high level of concentration - again, I don't know if this is due to the condition or the medication. I would really appreciate some suggestions. Thank you.
