My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Ca
I have terrible nerve pain in my feet and legs due to a spinal injury from work with the State of Ca.
Although I have lifetime medical, they are denying my Gabapentin. The reason they say is that Gabapentin should be denied is that 'studies are not supportive of lumbar pain' and yet what I take it for is radiculopathy from my L4/5 injury. Although I am going to fight it, I get so tired of fighting all the denials and torment. I fear the nerve pain and I fear the suicidal thoughts I had before I started taking the Gabapentin and was in so much pain. There is a huge lack of compassion and decency in that utilization team. Who are they, does anyone know?
I am breaking my pills in half to prolong them as I don't know how long this fight will take or if it will be successful.
