thanks for replying I filled out the form 5/15/09 but the HR rep was out until today original injury happened 5/12/09 this is in California I just don't want to be denied treatment or mess up payments by going to ER if it is not protocol on a technical issue but I really need to go I think.
If it has been awhile since you were injured, you may have a more serious injury, which is not going to show up in just a x-ray, you may need a CT, or MRI, Severe pain is a sure sign that something is not right.
I too would go to the ER. I too would bring my current medical reports, and medication list, plus X-rays. Then tell them what is going on, and by who. Give office phone numbers.
Manipulation by who? I hope not a PA. Manipulation can be worsening your problem if there is damage in there.
Make sure to report all this to the ER, and then get a copy of your statements to the er, and their DX. Make copies and save them for a rainy day. For your going to need this proof soon.
Now, get to the ER, wishing you some relief.
