Hi everyone, like a lot of you this is my 1st time doing this. I was diagnosed the beginning of May 2016 with CRPS aka Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and naturally I am more than a bit freaked out about it. According to what I have read this is a Rare thing here in the US (1 in 200,000). This can last a few years or be lifelong. Not exactly encouraging so I am looking for support groups I am dealing with this the best way I can think of which is to stay positive. This actually started in 2013 with golfers elbow, then the tendon tore surgery to repair it beginning of 2014, then ulnar nerve dislodged so surgery to relocate the nerve mid 2014. Surgeon said 6 months to a year recovery time, so fast foward beginning of this year still in pain so back to surgeon had EMG done results 3 different things going on with my arm so I am sent to neurologist and here I am. The pain that started with the elbow now goes from my neck down to my fingertips. Any advice is helpful & gladly taken! I do apologize for the length
