I'm curious if anybody here has had a claim accepted
for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. I have bilateral TOS and
pain is there all the time. So far, wc sent me to the
first IME and they say it's congenital. For this
condition to be congenital I would need to have an
extra rib, which x-rays show I don't have. My dr
insisted is work related (work with computer for over
9 years) and I also argued the congenital part. Now
they are sending me to another IME, but they call it a
consultation to decide treatment, at the UW. WC has not
accepted the claim yet. I was wondering if anybody else
had a claim accepted for this chronic condition and
if they have any advise. WC is private insurance and
I'm in Washington state. Thanks!
