Update. Had 2nd Stellate Ganglion Injection Procedure for CPRS. The first procedure had no effect on my hand. So far today, haven't felt any relief. Dr at UCLA was concerned that it didn't have any effect last time, including no side effects. This time my voice is hoarse. Not a fun procedure but have to try to get my hand back to normal. Thanks for listening. -JR

Your voice is heard here. Loud and clear. I hear you.

Unrelenting pain is an unwelcome companion.

I struggled with sympathetic dystrophy of my knee and lower leg for well over a year. Resolution was a slow process. But the intense pain did receed. I hope for you quieting of your CPRS.
