Hi there all,
I'm new on this site. I've just recently been diagnosed with CRPS & I'm struggling with it.
I have it in my left arm (my dominant arm) - the burning pain shoots up and down my arm 24/7.
I'm on similar drugs described here, duloxetine, amitriptyline, gabapentin, celebrex & oxycodene. I feel like a walking zombie.
I've taken loads of sick leave, but am trying as hard as possible to maintain work - I need money for all of my doctors bills!
I'm having a nerve block this week & hope for some relief there - has anyone had any luck with these?
I'm seeing a great group of doctors at a local pain clinic - pain specialist, pyschologist & physiotherapist.
It's a massive rollercoaster ride though - physically and emotionally. My partner is as helpful as he can be, but as you all say, they don't really understand the pain so it's great to have this forum.
I'm based in Australia, so I'm not sure if there are any "locals" on this forum. I've only just started to do some research to understand this pain & Dr Google doesn't have much nice to say about CRPS.
Good luck to all those "coping" with this. If you have any advice or tips on coping, please let me know. I'm all ears at the moment.
thanks for letting me dump my feelings. :)
