I have recently been diagnosed with CRPS after the worst 4 and a half years of my life. I fell over during a game of netball and twisted my ankle so badly that I knocked my foot out of place. I have since had 4 operations to try and fix my ankle. They have made it worse. Due to the amount of operations my nerves are very bad.
I'm 19 years old and struggle on a day to day basis to do something as simple as walk. My leg goes numb and the pain in my ankle is severe.
I have been tested on a numerous amount of medication, none of which have worked. I have reacted badly to most of these, ending up in A & E mostly.
I don't know how much longer I can deal with this
