So, last night, I hurt my back at work. Since I wasn't bleeding out, and only the ER is open at night, I put in a claim with my manager and took the rest of the night off. I spent some of today with our HR lady, and we got me an appointment with an MD a few miles outside of town. I'm hoping that I get to the doctor's office and get told it's nothing but a pulled muscle or a strain and I can get back to work after a few days rest or light duty, but I'm worried it's going to be worse news than that. I've got a slight case of scoliosis, and I'm a bit overweight, and I know I'm going to get it from the doc tomorrow. Plus I know he's going to be a tool, being a worker's comp doctor and me having a back injury. I'm also worried he may way to dope me up (I know he probably won't, but still). Anyways, anyone been down the back injury road before? What should I expect from the worker's comp doc? If it is something a little more serious, would I be better off asking to see a second DR or a chiropractor?
