Indiana PPI
#21
Well jayne i am home alone at night, wife works 3rd shift so she leaves for work at 10pm. So i deal with it last night 2.5 hrs sleep, most nights it is around 3 or 4 before i actually fall asleep. That is when i get up and take a couple of oxy to knock my arse out. I know what u mean about being in the system so long and not being normal anymore. My wife and kids tell me that all the time, dad u are not normal anymore. So that is why i guess the kids don't come around much often. well wife has to she has no where to go LOL. god bless her sole, i know i have put her through it, i have nothing to do with anyone i ever worked with anymore and most of my friends are all gone now, as i can not tolerate doing anything with them, i have days i want even get out of my pajamas just eat oxy and try to make it throuhg the day and get up tomorrow and start all over.. I have my cane and i hate having to use it my dogs chase me around when i use it. afraid i might just knock them around if they give me much excrement. but i love my animals i would never hurt them. they are so forgiveing and love you no matter how much pain you are in or what u say to them and they could careless waht u look like, they are there to love you and try to make you feel some better inside. I never know where i am going to end up at the end of the day to sleep. My bedroom, one the kids bedrooms as they are gone, maybe a couch or the recliner upstairs or down stairs, i jut die when that time comes and get to the point i want get up and move because it hurts too much, sometime to even breath. I have a dr appt tomorrow for accupuncture. and get my scripts written.

CF and Jayne believe me when I say I understand what u r goin thru. Recetnly the recliner has been my bed. I attempt to go to bed w my husband but the pain is so bad I have to get up and move. Seems to be I feel like I need to stretch my leg but it hurts too much, stretch out my back but it hurts to much. So I get to sleep maybe for an hr. @ 1 am and have to get back up to take more or diff pills to try and sleep. Fall asleep by 4 but have to be back up by 7 to get kids ready for school, one of which is homeschooled/cyber schooled. So there are days that I must push thru to work w him on school usually from couch. My hubby does alot as far as work, does alot at home to help as much as poss. Hopeing to get a call back from dr to get CT scan due to new symptoms. I can not imagine living the rest of my life like this. I am young, was very healthy. Just begining my career. And now in the short scope of things.....its over or never gonna be what it was. But im sure I will learn how todo things differently, even in constant pain.

Hi Guys,
I haven't been around for a while. I've been off trying to get a diagnosis and get well. I had a steroid injection in S1 and it made the pain way worse. Went back to my pain specialist and told her this does not feel like previous back issues. I told her I thought it was my SI jpint. She ordered an MRI nothing showed up. She did a steroid injection using fluoroscope and it was like heaven. No pain for about ten days. Then it returned. More talking to my primary who is an osteopath. He said we should try a chiropractor; Pain free after first adjustment. Lasted about three days and then I could feel it slipping out and pain returned. Got adjusted again and went immediately to be fitted for an SI belt. Two weeks wearing it around the clock. Little to no pain. Took a shower today, washed my hair and by the time I got dressed I was on my knees in pain.It slipped all the way at once and my pain is intense, I am headed to the chiropractor first thing tomorrow morning. I refuse to give up or give in. I was scheduled for knee surgery for last Tues. Dr's. office called and said wc said they would not pay. I had been to an IME and no big surprise he said all of my injuries were due to an aggravation to preexisting conditions related to my age and any trauma would have already healed in two to three months and I was able to return to work. Of course I have no job to return to as they terminated my employment after ninety days of not working.I told the wc lady that this time around there were no tears and I knew it wasn't personal. Just send me the paperwork so I could forward it to an attorney. I have no previous injury or issues involving my knees or SI joint. Never seen a Dr., had pictures taken or been prescribed medication for either knee or my SI joint. I have one large tear in my left meniscus and two tears in my right meniscus. With all the experiences on this site what do you give my chances of getting wc to continue to have to pay to get me well. I don't care about a settlement. I just want to be fixed.

you should start your own thread especially when you change topics.
without seeing the evidence from both sides it's difficult to predict which will be most convincing to a judge.
