Last march I fell hurting many parts of me-but my back was the worst so that is all I complained about, however I did note the other parts in my claim, saying they were sore but my back was the worse. I am a strong person so I just lived with the other hurts, plus I felt so bad about falling I did not want to ad more to WC. They have been so kind in paying me my wages and taking care of meds/treatment.
I was on lots of painkillers, so other problems did not feel as bad as they might be.
During the summer I did lots of swimming, as my back Dr. prescribed, my wrist became very hurtful as well as my shoulder I blamed it on the exercise.
Well my wrist just kept hurting I called the CA (claims adjuster) explained the swimming and how bad my wrist hurt, lot worse then my shoulder at the time. She said go through my health INS.
I did have ex-rays on my wrist but looks like its just old age arthritis so I let it go.
As I have eased up on pain meds for my back, now my shoulder won’t stop hurting I now have no job-and NO ins. Do I call CA to report this or just learn to live with it? I guess I goofed up by not complaining sooner-but I think the swimming just made it worse. So looks like I am in a pickle? I have been off work since last May-fall happened last March. I did report it on my workers comp claim but does that mean anything since so much time has lapsed?
Thanks in advance
