how much can the human body take. The complex regional pain syndrome has people qestioning whether or not they will continue to age, without heart attacks but the most agontistic knife stabbing and microwave pains calls for either continuing the slow diagnastic prossess.I just have never been a person of worship in any degree have had good luck and been able to look forward with the usuall dissapointment Unless their are new or inovative procedures that can be done in this immediate future.

God help the surgencs and upcoming new young innovative thoughts that by some day will provide their i nteligence and knolodge in such a way that it has an immediate resonse for the people who have been suffering for it seems a lifetime...........

Just rambling,

Well said Mike. Living with daily pain is just wrong, but until someone comes up with a cure for the ailments each of us have I can only hope that we all are able to find a doctor that will help with the symptoms...pain!

In my case, I have learned that I can take a hellofalot.
After my injury, I held on to the recovery time told me by my orthopedic doctors, even after my diagnosis of CRPS by the neurologist. I guess I am still in a little denial since I still cannot even say "complex regiiii......."  Honestly though, it is the most frusterating, impossible to figure out disorder I can imagaine,  I simply have no control over my symptoms.  I can acheive the same pain level by sitting on my ass as I can attempting to walk a city block, or for no particular reason at all.  Its just o buncha bullchit.
CRPS what a piece.
Permanent severe nerve damage from crushing injury.
CRPS, unwillingness to take meds.  Doomed to a life of misery but with a positive outlook.

Thanks chutzie,


   this info is fantastic. It is so hard to find quality crps info that is not repedetive and uninformative. Its funny, I have just started with boston Pain Care Center and the ketemine procedures are one of the things they brought up to me.(actually ketemine comas) I have had 4 ketemine infusions at the Beth Isreal Deaconess in Boston, but never got any relief. They where only 4-6 hour infusions and towards the last one I had them speed up the infusions to 3-4 hours and I started to feel sick from them so I stopped.

The good thing about this new pain place is they have medication management and they are more than willing to explore any and all medications and combinations to try and get the best results. They already told me they are going to change my short term dillaudid to a long term pain meds along with 24 hour muscle relaxers instead of me taking 2 4 times a day. These are just sample ideas that they have, and It made me think of you because I feel that these doctors are not afraid of using the meds the way they where intetionally ment to be used. (for the chronic pain patient)
I am going to start spending some time reserching these procedures and trials, they do sound like they are going in the right direction and with crps you usually dont have that many options that you truly feel as though they are going to work.
Thanks again for the info and anytime you need vent,talk or anything else I'm all open ears and mind.
                   Hope Everyone Has A Pain Free Day!!!!
