Darn...I thought I'd posted to you Jen, and it's disappeared into the ether somewhere. So welcome
I'm sorry that you've got so many pain issues to deal with, but I'm glad you've found us here.
I will leave the others here to advise on how PM doctors work, as I'm not from the US. But I've had Complex Regional Pain Syndrome for 13 years. If CRPS is even suspected, please don't hang around in getting it looked into. CRPS needs intensive therapy from a 'team' who knows what they are doing - and involves treatment from a lot of different angles. Antidepressant or epilepsy meds are usually used for the pain, nerve blocks, physiotherapy (if you can do aqua therapy, that's great!)
