I was at work on June 30, 2016 and I had a fall in the parking lot and I really didn't think much of it to start with all I knew that I was walking and before I knew it I twisted my ankle and then fell face first onto the pavement. I landed on my hands and one knee, just scrapped the knee and my hand felt like I had a stone bruise like you could get on your feet from going barefooted. I went ahead and filled out a incident report just to be on the safe side and the next morning I was glad I did. I woke up my Hand was killing me and I knew my ankle would be, I got to work and HR and told her I think I need to go get checked out so they sent me to get x-rays and they took Ankle & Hand x-rays and come to find out the Doctor came in and ask you said it wasn't broke right and I said I didn't think it was but he said I had an articular distal radius fracture of the wrist so they immediately started calling Ortho Doc's to see if anybody was still in office to see me. This happened on a Friday on July 4th weekend so nobody was in. They cast it up and said I needed to see a Hand Specialist and that was July 1st finally got in on workers comp to see Hand specialist on July 12th and all he said was it had caused a Arthritic Episode and that's what he has said every since went back on 26th July he decided to give me Cortisone Injection and since then It's been down hill hurting worse now than when I did it and I have some Doctor friends and they agree with the first Doctors and I think the Cortisone Injection he gave me I think he hit something going for second opinion soon has anybody went through anything like this before and had a misdiagnosis that caused problems ? I was hoping actually that he was right because all this just gets you behind on bills an taking care of your family.
