Newbie to forum - Chronic Pain - C&R
Yes, you should send a letter to your former attorney and request your file. You can also call and set up a time to pick it up but if they do not respond, I would send a letter. You own that file, not your former attorney.

If you returned to work and could not tolerate it did your doctor release you from work and are you receiving TTD payments? I do not know if this would be considered a new injury or now, but you should REALLY hire an attorney to help you. I recommend hiring an attorney who does most of not all of his business with work comp claims, and google him and read reviews to ensure you have a good attorney. I would mention your new diagnosis and that it has not been rated or reviewed. Can I ask if you are on medical leave or have you quit your job?

I recommend calling your claims adjuster and ask for a link for their MPN (medical provider network) and the rest I replied above. You can wait until you hire another attorney (if another attorney will take your case) and ask the attorney for assistance with finding a pain management doctor on your MPN.

 Have you settled your case with open medical as you mentioned your case is 6 years old?
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
