Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and hoping to get some advice.
I fell down the stairs in Aug, and now have lots of metal in my lower left leg.
My nerves were terribly damaged either by the fall or by surgery.
I've been told I've got CRPS.
It started with a crazy burning in my foot. If anyone touches it even lightly it hurts a great deal.
Putting socks or tights on is horrible.
I don't have constant pain, but get regular sharp burning and shooting pains.
Surgery has also resulted in terrible restless legs. I can't stop it happening unless I take tramadol.
I've been averaging 2 hours proper sleep a night so doc has given me clonazepam for a week which is helping (too addictive to be given it for longer apparently)
Has anyone else had a similar issue? What did you do for recovery?
What meds have helped?
I'm about to ask for trazodone as I hear it's good for restless legs as well as CRPS.
