So I was told I have Chronic Pain Syndrome or CRPS a few months ago..... I'm not really sure which one since my doctor was quite vague. Alongside that I was told to have patellofemoral pain syndrome and shoulder impingement.... to be honest they're all words I don't particularly understand. It started off with a sprained ankle 5 years ago. Since then I have had reoccurring sprained/strained/had pain from joints a crazy amount of times. It affects my ankles, wrists, shoulders and knees. Can anyone explain what could be going on and what CPS and CRPS mean?
Alongside this, in the last year I have experienced abdominal pain. It is excruciating and has caused several hospital visits and an ambulance ride. It can last around a week or two at a time and occurs every few months. I've been scanned for gallstones and appendicitis etc and have been cleared of them. Doctors seem lost? Anyone heard of this before and whether so not this could relate to CPS?
