I was resently sent to an IME for the exam of RSD. According to the OBWC the IME was to use the determing diagnosis from the AMA guidlines 5th edition. It is stated in the IME paperwork that was sent from the OBWC that eight symptoms must be present. I saw the paper work sent from the BWC. Where did you get your information if I might ask? According to the paper work that was sent to the IME this is very relevant determining the diagnosis and it is used, unless the BWC is telling the IME wrong information.

I was hoping to hear back from Chiron regarding the accuracy in his/her response given, but so far nothing.
Can someone who is familiar with the AMA guidelines give a confirmation that this individual is correct in what he/she is stating, because if this is so.....then I have to bring this to my lawyers attention. These guidelines were used just as I said in my earlier thread with the IME examine for CRSP. Should these AMA guidelines 5th Edition not have been used as Chiron states " they are outdated"
Thanks in advance,

"That is not correct, and the AMA Guides 5th ed are not the relevant text for determining the diagnosis and is never used in that regard. Completely outdated now."
