CRPS-My wife has this and no one will help.
All the doctors want to do is spinal stimulator. She is young and does not want to go through the painful procedure. Plus any other surgeries can cause CRPS to spread.The say pain meds don`t work, but they do. They just don`t last long enough. She is going crazy from the Pain. It has ruined our family life. Is there any help out there.
She may want to discuss things like sympathetic blocks or lidocaine infusion with her physician.
