I sent complaint form to Senator Dianne Feinstein and attached sheets to back it up, I hope they jump in fast and find out the truth of what is going on. And yes it also states calcitonin, I wasn't sure how to read it on the report thanks, gosh I pray that someone does something fast before they say I am going to loose my right leg, I am so scared right now, I'm on 300mg gabapinton and it does not seem to work, I feel every pain pill I have been prescribed does not seem to help with the constant pain, I am not a # I am a HUMAN BEING!
GOD BLESS EVERYONE AND I WISH U ALL THE BEST!

You will more than likely settle the claim. Not sure they are going to pay you anymore as the QME said your injury is resolved, However a Qme is not binding like an AME.

Last night I was going over my MRI THAT WAS TAKEN 09/30/09,
Impression:
FLUID ARISING FROM THE FIRST METATARSOPHALANGEAL JOINT WITH A JOINT EFFUSION. THE DORSAL CAPSULE IS NOT CLEARLY IDENTIFIED. THIS MAY BE INDICATIVE OF A TEAR OF THE CAPSULAR FIBERS.

RE: New Results! - Bad Boy Bad Boy - 05-04-2010

CLINICAL CORRELATION IS RECOMMENDED;

When interpreting a biopsy, or an imaging study (xray, CT, ultrasound, or MRI, among others), sometimes a particular finding can mean different things in different clinical situations.

When a lab technician or radiologist comes across a finding which may mean multiple things, they say "please correlate with clinical findings" or "clinical correlation requested" or "clinical correlation essential" to indicate that the finding may mean several things, in different circumstances.

[/b]For an eg: in a biopsy it may say Acantholysis, Dyskeratosis, and Spongiosis consistent with Grovers Disease. But these three results can be found in many other skin conditions, especially bullous (blistering) conditions.

In medicine, "clinical findings" are observable signs of a particular condition or disease, along with symptoms as reported by the patient. A test, as explained above, is "correlated" or "compared to" or "compared with" the observable signs and reported symptoms before a final diagnosis is made. Clinical findings can be made any time a physician examines and interviews a patient; most often, this occurs in a doctor's office or while a patient is in the hospital.

Okay Sunshine, you are Human BUT, your nothing but a numer to all these people in the circle of your case.

They may never even know you name, but they will always remember your number. You, me, and anyone else is just that, a number to them all.

When you get to fully understand that, you will get futher. They will never think of you ever, as Sunshine the Human. They will say number such and such though, account number this, claim number that....Social Security number that... Drivers License that....

Thanks again for your replies!
Have a nice day, I'll be on here later with new info.


RE: New Results! - Bad Boy Bad Boy - 05-04-2010

Now, you stated once again you have RSD/CRPS;

(((Demineralization was noted on radiographs and diffuse hyperactivity on bone scans starting at the early vascular phase. These findings suggestive of RSDS led to treatment with calcitonin, griseofulvin, and pamidronate, all of which were ineffective. Then afterwards Laboratory tests showed severe inflammation, promoting investigations for other conditions)))

Yet the medical report stating Demineralization, can mean RSD/CRPS, and yet it can also mean you have something other then RSD/CRPS.

Calcitonin, Griseofulvin, and Pamidronate are just medication used to try and treat RSD/CRPS. Nothing more then that.

The thing is, your being treated at a Pain Management by a PMD. You need proper DX (Diag) of your problem. Is it really RSD/CRPS or can it be something else. I asked if you even had a simple Thermal test done, you never said. I would think this takes about 1 minute to perform, and it doesn't even touch you, no pain, no feeling from reading it. But, even with that done, it isn't a full DX of RSD/CRPS. Your only being told, you might have RSD/CRPS. For it hasn't been proven, it needs to be proven.

Next it's okay to send letters to people. But, may I ask, what you really think a Senator is going to do for you medically. Nothing I ever known, as medical DX is up to you or the IC to determine reasonable, and proper testing with proper DX & treatment. You aren't going to get all this at a PMD visit, their there to treat pain. You need a doctor that specialises in treatment of RSD/CRPS, or any treating doctor to be your team leader in your treatment. One that performs DX, and then orders up the treatment plan for you with a PMD.

Things aren't going proper for you, yet somewhat backwards. As you should see a doctor, then they send you to a specialist, then to possibly a PMD & back again to the Doctor and such. This case you have is taking that route. You have no circle of doctor's, and you have no team leader.

I read it wrong it says calcaneous I believe or something like that.
PMD REPORT: AS OF 04/21-10
LOWER EXTREMITIES CRPS, FOOT CONTUSION


RE: New Results! - Bad Boy Bad Boy - 05-04-2010

Sunshine, your just not getting it. RSD/CRPS is now only a medical opinion. You need futher testing to even prove you have RSD/CRPS. As you very well could have something else.


RE: New Results! - Lilly - 05-05-2010

BBBB is correct Sunshine, the dx of CRPS/RSD needs to be verified by more testing, and clearly STATED in the medical records that aptient definitely has RSD....it doesn't count that the doc simply tells you, this is what he believes you to have. There absolutely, must be medical record proof. Until that dx is given...you are going to continue to get jerked around.....as RSD/CRPS is a lifelong affliction, that will require lifelong meds and treatments...this is why they (IC/WC) are dragging their feet...it will be costly to them, for a long time.

Gentle hugs to you! Lilly


RE: New Results! - Sunshine7 - 05-14-2010

Thanks for your replies,
I understand I need to go to more doctors like a nouraligest but when I had mentioned a nouraligest to this new PMD on 4-21-10, he told me he had more knoledge of CRPS THEN THEY DO, I looked up his back ground and he specializes in CRPS/RSD, I see him again on the 19 of this month so what do I tell him?
Thanks again for your replies!
