I 'm a 47 yrs old female and have been treated for 12 1/2 years for RSD/CRPS. I have tried different types of pain medicine. Which I get little of no pain relief. Approx 2 years ago they had to take me off the pain meds as they were shutting down my liver.
I tried a Spinal Cord Stimulator in 2002 but, had emergency surgery to remove it as I could walk without falling, keeping balance & Mirgaines. When they removed it they said I had spinal cord damage for the stins moving in the spinal cord area. After a month in the Hospital learning to re-walk and finishing therapy a home I'm doing great. It took me approx 6 month to get better but, not the way I use to be.
Now I suffer from lots of migraines and RSD?CRPS pain. The mirgaines are under controll with Topamax and injections. The RSD/CRPS pain is real bad at times, sometimes not able to do anything because of the pain. I would like to know if they is anything I could do to control the pain without pain meds. I became disabled in 2002 due to the pain and not able to work.
If you have any suggestion or comments please let me know...I just want to be able to manage the pain.
If you have RSD/CRPS I would like to know what worked or not for you.
