Helllo Piece Of CRPS,
I have had crps for over three years now. I am in non stop agony 24 hours a day. Buring,stabbing,slicing,throbbing,swollen and most of all is absolutely unbearable electric shocks coming from my right foot.
I have had many surgeries and procedures during this time. From specialists to pain management to institutions on nerve pain etc.....
I definately have made some bad decisions as far as surgeries go. They say you have to try them before you can say that they dont work, so, you start at A and work your way through Z.
The biggest mistake so far was my scs operation. It never worked correctly, shocking my ass and back of legsconsistantly. Even after 3-4 adjustments it never worked right. The closest I got was maxing out the scs power and trying to reach the problem spot, but the 100% power would feel like it was ripping off my hole foot and got hot flashes. I'm sure I would'nt have made it too long at that power level. So I got that removed as soon as posible and I stll have pains on the side of the scs, considering it was perfectly the same height as my pant button hight.
All crps is not the same.You may have 4 or 5 of the 10-15 symptoms and it really dose'nt matter because it rearly mirrors itself.
The only thing that surprises me is that you dont take any meds??
Man, If I did'nt have something to calm the stabbing pain I would be a ER patient morning,day and night.
Just remember everyone is different and may handle things in a different way.I can always feel the conflict between my med vs pain battling away in my foot. I love when the med wins, but unfortunatly lately pain never loses for too long before it comes back looking for another battle!!
Just a couple of rambling comments from one individual. Knoledge and the right doctors hopefully will put you on the right path.
Hope Everyone Has A Pain Free Day!!!
