Finally got approval for an EMG (waited since February). Had the procedure yesterday. Although the Neurologist was unable to complete all the tests because of the severe pain I was in. They appeared to be normal for the most part. A couple of them showed something, not sure what, but will find out when report come out. After a long explanation by the Neurologist, he strongly feels I may have RSD / CRPS. He told me he would put that in the report to the IC and my doctor. He also told me to discuss this with my doctor.
Could someone who is familiar with RSD / CRPS please contact me. How will all this, if I am truly diagnosed with it, work out with my WC case? What do I have to look forward to (in the near future and long-term). I am a nervous wreck over all this. My case has been ongoing for 2+ years and my IC, of course, is trying to stop my benefits completely. Even though their doctor and mine have me at 100% TTD.
Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have done some research on RSD / CRPS and is does not look pretty, so to speak.
Also, my doctor has been requesting approval for several tests since February, and only recently got the approval for the EMG. I did get a letter from the comp board approving an MRI, but my doctor says they need the approval from the IC.
Thank you in advance!
