Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - November 15th 2011, 07:36 PM

I'm not exactly sure if this is the right section; feel free to move it if you like.

I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome in my foot around two weeks ago. It has been bothering me for 2 1/2 months. I can't see a doctor until I go home for winter break. Right now I'm getting by with pain meds. I'm also supposed to do physical therapy (desensitization).

I was wondering if anyone else has had to deal with this syndrome, and what you did to recover from it?

God, grant the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know that difference.

I don't, nor have I had, CRPS, but I do know most who recover from it did therapy or surgery. There are some cases where the body healed itself without treatments.

Just treat your symptoms and hopefully it will go away

Hey Laura,
I was diagnosed with CRPS about six months ago in my right foot, after I sprained my ankle playing tennis. The sooner that you are treated for it, the better your chances are of recovering from it. It's one of those things that gets worse over time instead of better. Right now I'm on a bunch of meds, doing PT, seeing a regular doctor, a pain specialist, and a foot specialist. I'm also getting a lumbar sympathetic nerve block next month. I don't know how much research you've done on it, but AmericanRSD Hope is a great website and on facebook there is a group called RSD aka really sucks dystrophy. CRPS use to be called RSD, just in case you were wondering If you have any questions feel free to ask or email me.
