Bloody Dr's

Posted , 3 users are following.

so after having Dr's tell me no you dont have fibro or you dont want to be diagnoise with that. I went to a dr the other day for a suspected work place injury and this dr says " you suffer a lot of unexplained pain " yes i say I think i have fibro. He says well this will effect your work cover claim. Really I cant win !!

    If you do NOT have a specialist diagnostic for Fibro at this stage then the Work Cover claim cannot use that as an excuse!!!  to not cover you.

    another thing..... regardless later of any Fibro diagnosics, if your still working and you have an accident, it's still a dam work place or (home) accident injury...  Fibro has nothing to do with it.

      I tthink so too, any pain caused by work should be treated as a work injury until otherwise proven not to be. I think it was pretty Naive of the Dr to make that comment personally which was a bit disappointing as he is only 1 of 2 dr's at my local clinic who even seem to believe there is such a thing as fibro.

    Have you been referred to a rheumatologist.....?  They are the ones that confirm whether or not it is Fibro after all the necessary test are carried out to rule any other symptoms.

    It is frustrating and we shouldn't have to put up with the arrogance of many specialists.

    If you have an Occupational Department at your work place they can organise an Access to Work assessment.

    Stay calm and positive and try not to stress over it as this will only make your condition worse.

    Good Luck and hope you get the answers you need shortly.

    Take care and sending you gentle hugs.....wink xx

      If your doctor isn't able to identify a cause or give you a diagnostic, then the doctor has to refer you to some who might has a better clue about things and who could make a decision etc...  Frig me!  What is the high Uric acid caused by???  diet?  There will be a natural way surely of getting your uric acid down to normal levels...   Otherwise it may cause later damage somewhere in your system???

    Hi currychic 

    i had had an accident at work last summer and since then I have been getting all the widespread pains all over my body (stabbing pains, burning pains, dull aches, feel like I'm bruised but don't have one visible, fell like I'm being poked in between my ribs plus many more things) won't bore you. I never had any of this until that accident. I'm under the musculoskeletal people at the hospital at the moment and have had numerous other tests done to rule out many other things. The musculoskeletal people think mine was caused by the accident. I have my appointment to see the rheumatologist on 1st February so will see what they say. I am going through a claim on my work at the moment and not once have I been told if they do confirm its fibro it will affect my claim x
