I was stuck with a needle several years ago. Subsequently contacted HEP C and HIV. Since that time I have been on labor and industries and social security disability. Currently my life s ok but i am unable to function at a 100%. If I get over tired I get confused and frequently mix things up. I also have nerve damage from one of the viruses attacking my spine. This was diagnosed by a neurologist. My ambulation has been affected requiring me to use a cane or a walker if going long distances. I am now being scheduled for an Independent medical exam to reevaluate my limitations.
Has anyone else been thru a n IME? I am concerned that they will not understand that my limitations are not always noticable. The last 3 years I worked sick I could not put in a 40 hour week. Any suggestions or advice would help.
