    If that's the only medical evidence submitted sure.
    You're the claimant, it's your responsibility to submit medical evidence to support your case.

    I agree with Tony. A diagnosis from a licensed physician would be the gold standard evidence.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
