ABOUT CRPS

THIS PAGE IS FOR PATIENTS OR DOCTORS WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH CRPS.

 What causes CRPS is not known. In most of the cases it is the trauma. When physical Trauma is associated with  psychological trauma ---- chances of CRPS go up significantly. Example:  A Patient who whom I know lost his son in the accident and also injured his arm. He developed one of the worst forms of CRPS.

We have divided CRPS into three categories
1. post traumatic
2. non traumatic

It is important for all physicians to understand that Crps is in the brain and not in the limb. The pain will remain even if you amputate the limb.

  1. I have chronic pain and it moves around. Once my thigh was burning for 3 days. Now my neck is stiff for 15 weeks now and counting. Before that I had pain in my abdomen for about 3weeks and I have gallstones and my pcp isnt concerned. He puts me on so many drugs like I'm a laboratory rat. I'm getting a woman doctor and see if it's different, see if she hears me. I had this doctor for 7-8 years. And whenever I had a physical problem he sent me to a specialist. Doctors I had in the past would examine me. Not this doctor. So I started giving him a hard time telling him that he's my PCP that he doesn't collaborate with me and make a plan. So he started with trying to get me off of Xanax I've been on it for 40Year's and I was all for it and I managed to cut down but I cant go completely off of them. I said that I want to go to PT for my chronic pain especially my neck right now I do get injections for my hips and I want to try that for my neck. So, I have an appointment for tomorrow and find out. I've got my care team all in an uproar and they finally made a plan. So I'll try it and let you knows how it goes.
