Ive had CRPS, RSD my whole life. I just figured out what it was recently and Im 16 years old. This condition is a curse. I believe for me, these pains are irriversible. I have seen 20 specialists of all different fields of medical practices, physical therapists and I took 3 MRI's. I have body aches all over my body, when I eat hot food, cold food, whatever, I feel like a house on fire. Imagine you are on top of a volcano. Now imagine the volcano erupts and lava is pouring all over you. I always feel like Im about to explode like a nuke because its this unbearable. I sweat so much in cold weather like i was living in the desert. Its wierd. But sometimes freezing sensations which makes me cold in cold weather These burning/freezing sensations also cause panic attacks and affect school too. I have anxiety, and the burning sensations are so severe I can't take a math test. Instead I become uncontrollably angry and start breaking things. I become hotheaded for long periods of time, I can't sleep, I get dehydrated quickly even though I drink 4 water bottles at track practice, my social life is very limited. I am very sensitive to everything and everuone. I feel that my condition is limiting me. I feel my body is imprisoning me to not live a good life but I make the most of it when I can. But I can still move my body because I live in world of constant pain, others do too and I cannot afford to lose the ability to move as CRPS does to people. This is a burden but I heard it happens to females more than males. How odd. For me there might be no relief but you have a chance unless you're like me.
