A few Questions
#11
Watch they don't make it worse. I agree with 1171 on this. Time for another round of doctors.

OK< I will be going back to my doctor in a few weeks, what kind of questions should I ask him ? I asked questions before and he really doent give me much say. It was the physical therapy doctor that told me I have CRPS,not the doctor. Since this is WC I had to go to the company doctor first, he reffered me to the present doctor I am going to,,, can I go to a doctor of my own choosing?

Ask them about crps.
Ask them why you are having these symptoms.
Ask them how they plan to treat you.
Ask them how long it might take to see improvement.

Start with reading the entire link I gave you in My first reply.
Being well informed, makes for better treatment.
Take pictures of the effected area, Even if it looks normal.
Invest in an infered thermometer. Harbor Freight has one for under $40

Keep a log on what it is doing, when it hurts, when it has temperature changes, changes in appearance. You will need a record to see what is going on with it.

Listen to 1171.

If you have an attorney, you get mileage forms from there, and turn them back in at your attorney's

if not, you need to contact your adjuster, or nurse case manager for them. You also get reimbursed for parking

Can I collect anything for pain and suffer from this injury? I lost the tip of my little finger on left hand. Its been over 1 year and still hurts , as a matter ofr fact it hurts more now then when I first had it happen. I have never talked to the WC people yet, never heard anything from them since they first sent me a claim number, that was back June 1 2012 when I first had this happen and the company turned it in. I'am going to see about getting paid milage for going to therapy.

no.
workers comp is "no fault" and excludes pain and suffering.
I didn't think pennsylvania paid mileage.
