Nothing has been easy in regards to complex regional pain syndrome (crps). The diagnosis, living with the illness, learning to work with crps, traveling, people’s judgements.
Three weeks ago I just got told by my company’s insurance company that I’m not sick, at least not sick enough.
I’m not sure why I expected the process to be easy. A process that had already taken a pile of medical records (two years worth to be exact), explanations of benefits, co-pay receipts, doctors’ notes from three different hospitals, prescription records, and a constant repeated symptoms list to come to this conclusion. Oh and five months!
It took two general physicians five months to conclude that I’m not sick.
I don’t even know how to start to explain my frustration.
