I have severe CRPS to the left hand side of my body, it started after I dropped a TV on my foot 3 years ago and my life has never been the same since. The pain is horrific, the burning, the bone pain the muscle pain the whole pain that is so loud you can not even tell where it is. I hate the detachment I feel for the effected body, it is not mine it feels totally alien I can not even draw on the pain clinic diagrams unless I separate my left from right side.
I have tried mirror therapy , box therapy, physio, hydro, tens, a multitude of drugs and I just can't cope with knowing tomorrow I will still be the same. I am in a wheel chair as I can not weight bare on left side, my whole life has been turned upside down. Is there anyone out there who has been through the same or is going through it now? How do we cope? How do the people that love us cope? and what can we do?
