I am new here, I had an accident at work Nov. 2, 2014.
I found out in Dec I had a rotator cuff tear and bicep tendon out of place. I had surgery Feb. 23, 2015.
But shortly after the accident I was having symptoms of crps and didn't realize what it was and neither did the surgeon, till after my surgery due to the pain being out of proportion to the injury etc.
I went through physical therapy, but was still having pain and other symptoms, forced to go back to work 3 days a week @ 5 hours each day due to the timed allowed through workman comp.
This has been a battle not only physically but mentally exhausting. I was finally granted occupational therapy along with desensitized therapy mid year 2016.
I am expected to do the desensitize exercise 4 times a day reguardless if I get sick or exhausted . and if I don't succeed I am talked down to as if I'm a child.
I have been told not to think of pain as pain but only pressure. Not to mention Pain...
Has anyone here been through this???
Sorry I tried to make this short,I tried to find a support group but there are none in my area.
