My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Maine
I hurt my back at work back earlier this year picking a tool up at work. I couldn't stand up, walk, bend, twist or pretty much move for almost a week after it happened. I had a herniated disc prior to this accident however, I had a neurosurgeon say he thought it appeared larger but, was hard to tell due to different hospitals doing them. I have reinjured it two more times since then with pretty much the same results. I have constant lower back and leg pain which my primary believes is due to the nerve by my herniated disc. I just received the weirdest IME. The doctor did it in a doctor's office that wasn't his, on a day that was closed, and to no big surprise was missing reports from the neurosurgeon I saw and didn't feel like it had anything to do with that but, rather bone and muscle. Oddly enough I've done physical therapy for almost eight months and had injections in my back for the pain. Little improvement. I would assume the denial letter will be in the mail, anyone else ever go through this or had to deal with a problem with nerve pain that couldn't be obviously shown to prove it?
