Hi Cronic and welcome to Healing Well's chronic pain forum. I am sorry that you have to be here but very glad that you found us. You are at such a young age to be bogged down with issues like CP, it just doen't seem fair. But, it has no age discrimination either. If you have read any of the posts here then you can see we are a great group of caring folks. We try to help each other as much as we can.
We do have members here with the SCS and they will post perhaps later and give their two cents. I don't think we have anyone here with one for wrist pain. Are you going to be scheduled for a trial run for SCS anty time soon. Even with an implant, you will not be 100% pain free and most likely will need to be on some form of pain medication. You need to do a search here at the forum for the SCS and you will find lots of info on it. It has been discussed here many times. I also suggest that you go to Medtronics.com and read up on the device there. They have an area on the site devoted to the SCS implants. I have a Medtronic pain pump and I am familiar with their site.
If your drs think you may have RSD, then I really think you need to educate yourself as much as possible about that condition. It can really be a booger to deal with and educating yourself is really something good. Most people with RSD do need help from a PM dr for care and treatment.
Take care and good luck.
