He is having severe musculoskeletal pain. He has been having repetitive movement pain in his hands, and other joints. The thing is, he can't nail down a date to when this happened. It has been getting worse over time.
I agree with Donna and Marlon. A workers' comp lawyer will know how to determine the correct injury date, as well as work with your doctor to figure out if this is a work-related condition. Time is ticking on your 90-day notice, so it's important to see a workers' comp lawyer as soon as possible.See question

This is not a Second Injury Fund case, but rather, a workers' comp injury claim against your employer and its insurance carrier.

Sometimes it's the deputy, other times it's due to some other staff shortage issue. Regardless, you lawyer should be able to fill you in much more fully.See question
