I wanted to know if you knew what could cause pain on and off all the time in the lower back part of my head?

Cindy, try asking your question again with more detail as to when, where exactly is the pain, any other symptoms, and consider the input from the answers from your first question. This does sound like simple tension but the back of the head part needs to be more specific if you can be.

I was hurt on the job where they did not have worker's comp policy, I was sent to Concentrate a Workman's Comp facility and waited for a Doctor to examine me, when he did come in he did not examine me but wanted to have a discussion of my past medical history, at the time I had a migraine headache on top of a serious lower back injury, needless to say I left the office and went to the E.R. of our local hospital. The Doctor at concentrate later filed a report stating that in his opinion "My injury did not look job related, and that I was a rude and difficult patient" this in turn got my claim denied by W.C. and an appeal hearing was set. At the hearing my Boss at the time went on record stating the accident was job related and he witnessed it. So the decision was overturned. I ended up having to have a major operation to fix my back (haha) when I first seen my surgeon he inquired why I had waited so long to get medical attention and that if I had been treated at the time of my injury instead of almost 1year and 3 months later I probably would not of had to have the operation. My question is, can I hold the Doctor and Concentra Medical Facility partially responsible for my disability?

Probably not. The burden of proof is yours and if you were to find a jury to hear it out, then your chances are still pretty slim. It is not fair for it to work this way, but it is the bad habit of many doctors who "comply" with insurance companies in an effort to minimize your injury to a dollar amount. There are many doctors and others who automatically think that if you are injured at work, you should go away quietly. Anyone who says that there are no bad doctors out there is terribly wrong and supremely ignorant about it. The lack of legal recourse in these situations is simply a joke and causes many people to lose faith in the legal system, and most professionals, especially doctors.

I'm glad you eventually got the help you needed, (from a good doctor), and I hope the surgery works well for you on into the future.

Comments :
Thank you, I was afraid of this unfortunately I am not the only one that this facility has done this to. I have spoken with others who have agreed to file complaints against Concentra with any luck maybe we can get someone to aleast look into it.

I'm not planning on ever doing this but it came up one day and I was wondering...

if I made pictures of me when I was under 18 and then I turned 18 would I be able to legally post those on the Internet or sell them or whatever?

I'm not planning on doing it I was just wondering so don't be calling me a $lut or nothing.

If you are a person with moral character now and didn't know better then, what the use of answering your question? You would be encouraging all pedophiles to look at them for what reason? Sexual offenses against children make up a significant proportion of reported criminal sex acts. Do you want to be responsible for adding fuel to the fire just for money? If you did this, then it will be no different than someone else taking a picture of an under age child and posting it on the internet................which IS a crime.

I have a 90 Chrysler Labaron, high mileage. Experiencing problems with the Engine bucking after about a half hour of driving. It has a lot of mechanics scratching their heads. after it sets for about an hour it runs great, smooth. It has happened a number of times. I ruled out bad gas, timing, transmission, just had a tune-up but still doing it. Can it be a computer problem, or sensor, and one mechanic said it could be a grounding problem? But why would it run smooth when it sits for about an hour? its not running hot, temperature is normal, alternator voltage is in the normal range.

Intermittent problems are the toughest to fix. Think of it like this......when you have a loose electrical connection and it is warm, and the connection is working, all is well until it gets cold or wet. The connection will separate and won't work at all like it is supposed to. When it heats back up, it expands and makes a better connection, making it run normally. Some problems like these are related to the distributor cap, fuel line and vapor lock, fuse assemblies, relays, electric fuel pump, ignition switch, loose ground at almost any level, and so on. This also sounds much like an automatic choke, idle air control valve or fuel heater, depending on the car. Good luck.

I had an on the job injury Jan.30, 2005, (at the time my employer did not have a workman's comp policy on me) that resulted in surgery on my lower back on April 13, 2006. I had multi level fusion, 6 titanium screws and 2 titanium cages put in my back. I got a lawyer with a contingency fee plan.

I am a 39 yr. old woman at the time of the injury I had just turned 37. I had a permanent partial disability rating of 45% the Ins. company only wants to give me 20%. I'm not concerned w/the money I want medical, someone to pay for the next operation that I have been told I will need in 5-10 years. I don't think my lawyer is even fighting for this, how do I go about getting this?

Legal cases like these take time and it always seems that the attorney isn't doing anything, but he is. This can take as long as 4 years and even longer in some cases. You didn't indicate where you were located so your legal options could be different than most other places. For instance, an employer in the US only has to have a certain number of employees before he is required to carry workman's comp. This does not mean that he may not be liable for the medical bills but it only means that he may not have had the insurance to cover himself in an employee injury.

I too know a little about this since I am expecting future surgeries and have much titanium hardware. One of my injuries occured at work and the insurance company wanted to bring my disability, or MMI, down to as low as they could get it. This is an attempt to minimize your injury in dollars they, or the company will be responsible for paying for future medical and income liability.

They will want to settle with you for a dollar amount. Be sure that you don't let them sell out your future medical rights if you do agree for cash settlement. Always keep your medical options open. My case is a little different. I kept going to their doctors until I went for a blood test and they accused me of taking drugs I wasn't. I dropped their services, contacted my lawyer and I'm currently holding them "within the legal system", kind of my way of waiting them out, if you will, while using my own insurance to cover my future needs. I will then bill them later for my extra trouble and effort because they are trying to minimize my injuries.

If your attorney does not have time for you then you may get better results from another one. You can't hire two for this so you will lose what time your case has been waiting within the system if you do this. It's usually best to hold your current ground against these insurance people although it is not unheard of to change attorneys. It is all in how long you can wait according to the legal system and the way the game is played by the insurance attorneys.

Good luck to you.

Hi I have a 1978 Toyota pickup and I just rebuilt the carburetor it helped it run a lot better but now it is starting to backfire and spit flames out the tailpipe I was told it could be the distributor or one of the censors is bad I was wondering if anyone knows about it? thanks pausley G.

Question found in Trucks
Your timing may need to be adjusted with a timing light. Sometimes after a carburetor rebuild, the adjustment for the fuel/air may also be too rich causing more fuel to enter the manifold. This could also be a sensor either before or after the catalytic converter but not as likely. I think a check into your plugs, no cracks in the distributor, fuel/air adjustment on the newly rebuilt carb, fuel filter and maybe a timing light/adjustment will make that 78 Toyota run like new. Good luck to you.

Yup, "timing" is the usual culprit or backfiring.

I have a hot and cold washing machine, I am going to get a cold water fill only washing machine, how should I seal off the existing hot water pipe?

Discuss this question

Question found in Plumbing
There's a couple of easy ways to do this. If you just want to use cold water, no matter what the setting on the washer, buy a 2 way valve, a split for your cold water that feeds both hoses off of one faucet going into the washer. All hardware stores have this splitter and it costs no more than 3 to 5 bucks. It usually attaches without any modification, or adapters to both hoses and the faucet. Keep in mind that most newer washers require both hoses to be connected regardless of the water temperature designation. There should be no need to buy another washer to do what you need done here. This is the same type of splitter that people use to run two or more garden hoses off of one faucet. Good luck.

hi, yesterday at school a girl in my class kicked me between the legs and I am still really swollen and sore, what can I do to stop the pain? I don't want to tell my mum but I'm in so much pain, please help

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
Why not tell your mom? If you have swelling and pain it may become worse if you don't check with your doctor. Watch out for blood in urine and keep something cold on it to cut down on the swelling. 20 on and 20 off, and for pete's sake, get someone to look at it that knows how to treat this. Also avoid those girls or activities/behavior that causes them to kick you there. Good luck.

My 16 year old daughter has several nosebleeds every month and when she does they are very heavy with very large clots and taking 20 minutes or so to stop. Is there anything to worry about? She had one yesterday which I witnessed at close hand and it was horrendous and she said she felt dizzy afterwards and this worried me.

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
People are more susceptible to bleeding if they are taking medications which prevent normal blood clotting (Coumadin, warfarin, aspirin, or any anti-inflammatory medication). In this situation, only a very minor trauma could result in significant bleeding.

The incidence of nosebleeds is higher during the colder winter months when upper respiratory infections are more frequent, and the temperature and humidity fluctuate more dramatically. In addition, changes from a bitter cold outside environment to a warm, dry, heated home results in drying and changes in the nose which will make it more susceptible to bleeding. Nosebleeds also occur in hot dry climates with low humidity, or when there is a change in the seasons. The following list of factors predispose people to nosebleeds:

* Infection
* Trauma
* Allergic and non-allergic rhinitis
* Hypertension
* Use of "blood thinning medications"
* Alcohol abuse
* Less common causes include, tumors and inherited bleeding problems

How do you stop the common nosebleed?
Most people who develop nose bleeding can handle the problem without the need of a physician if they follow the recommendations below:

1. Pinch all the soft parts of the nose together between your thumb and index finger.
2. Press firmly toward the face - compressing the pinched parts of the nose against the bones of the face.
3. Hold the nose for at least 5 minutes (timed by the clock). Repeat as necessary until the nose has stopped bleeding.
4. Sit quietly, keeping the head higher than the level of the heart; that is, sit up or lie with the head elevated. Do not lay flat or put your head between your legs.
5. Apply ice (crushed in a plastic bag or washcloth) to nose and cheeks.

I hope this helps and good luck.
