i'm new here. briefly, i was put on light duty for tendonitis in my hands 6 months ago, which was fine. i worked with my restrictions and things went well. last week the dr. decided it was now an arthritis problem mostly since the tendonitis seemed to be resolved and was told workers comp won't cover arthritis. i was sent back to work with no restrictions and it's been a nightmare of pain ever since. i didn't have arthritis when i started with this employer. is this true that arthritis is not covered by workers comp? if it's not true, what now?
