My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Wyoming
Had a head, neck, back injury back in 2010 i was 27 when it happened having a hard time understanding the MRI reports? Cervical mri shows all disks normal except c7-t1 shallow disk bulge, t1-t2 shallow broad-based disk protrusion. Mild effacement of the ventral thecal sac, the neural foramina are patent. Mild facet degenerative changes bilaterally
Thoracic MRI. Shows mild central disk protrusion at t3-t4. Effacement of the ventral thecal sac. Flattening of the cord focally at this level. CSF does surround the cord posteriorly. Shallow central disk protrusion at t4-t5. Shallow right paracentral disk protrusion at t5-t6 with a moderate right paracentral protrusion at t6-t7. Shallow central protrusion/bulge at t7-t8
Lumber MRI shows all disks normal except L4-L5mild disk bulge somewhat asymmetric to the left. Mild inferior neural foraminal narrowing is demonstrated with slight contact of the exiting left L4 nerve root
The conus demonstrate normal morphology and signal characteristics, terminating posterior to T12-L1
Have been in constant pain since injury, all doctors keep doing is trying different anti inflammatory meds and muscle relaxers every few weeks

First main question is. Is this normal from an equipment accident? Never had neck or back problems before. Are the doctors messing around by only changing meds every few weeks? Should they be trying different options?
