Fort Lauderdale, FL asked in Workers' Compensation for Florida

Q: Did my job duties cause my tennis elbow?

Was DX with tennis elbow nine months ago I do think my job duties caused this and has continue to get worse. I had MTR,shot, doctor visits, medication costs that I paid for and I also missed work without pay and was unable to use vacation time to cover me while I was out of work! What can I do? I recently have been experiencing a lot of pain and have again missed work to try and rest the arm, however my duties at work doesn't seem to allow my wrist, arm, and elbow to get better? I need to seek more medical attention and do not know how to handle this! Been at job for four years!
