As I posted on 2/15, I have 2 injuries on my claim. The back injury has met MMI and my PTP has sent me out for pain mgmnt. I saw the doctor at the pain center monday and took my MRI films. This Doc insists that this is not work related??? I have been out of work almost a year. Pain Doc has insisted I have a NCT to find my source of pain for treatment. I suppose the surgeon I have been seeing is a complete idiot according to the opinion of this pain management doc. The DX is bilateral lumbar radiculopathy and spinal stenosis, annular tear. Anyone have any input? My PTP was not on a ER list, I chose this Dr.
I need to know what to expect. It was really unsettling. Will this have an affect on my case since I have reached MMI or is this just standard run of the mill WC??
