My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Virginia
DOI 4/11 I suffered a back injury at work have been to neurologist who looked at MRI said didn't see anything out of ordinary. I looked at report before dr appt said had three disc bulges in L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1 nerve root effacement and pronounced DDD at L5-S1 level. I asked him said that was normal for my age. I have severe pain on left said down leg. Neurologist suggested work conditioning and epidural steroid injection. I went to work hardening and doing very well. I had the injection and now things are worse. Been 5 days and I can't make the work hardening appts now. Icalled the dr told them what was going on all his nurse said was try to go to work hardening do what you can and dr will see you thurs to reevaluate you. He won't give me anything but tramadol and elevil. Can I go to ER if pain gets unbearable before my next scheduled visit? Also I want second opinion from another doc, I emailed my CA and he's out of the office til after memorial day. Any help out there?
