Injured at work, need suggestions
I work in the receiving dock of a department store in Saint Louis Missouri. I injured my shoulder/arm and wrist which is swollen during work hours moving a large appliance by myself since I had no help and the customer was waiting on 06/10/11.I was taken to an Urgent Care facility and was prescribed pain medication for a strained trapezius muscle in my shoulder and a sprained wrist. I was put in restriction of not lifting anything over 25 pounds. and told to see the workman's comp doctor at another Urgent Care location today. I took my prescription with me since I was going to get it filled after I had seen the workman's comp doctor today since I hadn't had a chance yet or the finances. The doctor examined me and I told him where the pain is located. He basically told me that for someone as young as myself I shouldn't be having all these pains and why am I in the line of work that I am in. ???? :O He did not order any Xrays, tore up my prescription written by the first doctor I had seen on the 10th, told me to take Aleve, and said that I could go back to full duty work with no restrictions. The injury happened just a couple of days ago, I am still in pain, and don't know what do to here. Any suggestions?? Thank you
