I was injured while lifting a heavy object. I filed for workers’ compensation and saw a doctor I was sent to by workers’ comp and the doctor said there is nothing wrong with me but scoliosis. This was the first time I have ever been told that after working in a pretty physical industry.
Now my leg is going numb and am I working extreme light duty (office work) . I was referred to an orthopaedic specialist who ordered x-rays but nothing else. I asked for an MRI but no one is helping I feel like I am being ignored. I contacted another doctor in network and I am now getting run the around. In the meantime my leg is getting worse and basically have no doctor. Do I have any rights to medical care?
