CRPS • NEED MORE OPTIONS!

Hello - I have CRPS in my left foot since the first of October 2020. I have had two Sensitivity nerve blocks and neither one made the slightest amount of difference. Not I have been out on Morphine with hydrocodone. The last thing I want to do is continue taking these pills. Anyone one else have CRPS and have a light at the end of the tunnel?

Thanks YJ

Hi YJ, I am so sorry to hear the two nerve blocks have not helped. I really feel for you, I was diagnosed with CRPS after two years of unexplained pain in my right foot. I completely understand about not wanting to take the pills, but Gabapentin was one thing that did relieve the pain in my case.

I also had 3 Lumbar Sympathectomy procedures carried out, guided by ultrasound.

These injections block the sympathetic nerves in the lower back from sending pain signals to the foot.

I had significant relief after the first one and have been pain free since (that was 20 years ago).

It took me a while to get the diagnosis but hopefully the research and treatment has come a little way even since then.

I would say keep going and it’s definitely worth asking about this Lumbar Sympathectomy to see if it could help you 😊 All the very best x

Thanks for the suggestion! My doc prescribed Gabapentin today and will try it out tomorrow!! Told them I want a 3rd nerve block and if that doesn’t work the shock thing In plant. Plus made an appointment with another doc for a second opinion. Things are looking hope full. Thanks for the suggestion again. YJ

Hi there I have not long been diagnosed with crps on my wrist that I fractured in april. I am on gabapentin have been for years but at the moment I'm trying cbd oil and I must say it dulls the pain maybe you should consider trying this. I am seeing an advanced physiotherapist who has suggested trying a Powerball which is helping with the movement in my wrist. Maybe you should ask to see a physiotherapist you can only try . I totally understand your frustrations but physio might actually help. Crps is a difficult diagnosis they need to do more research on this condition. I hope you feel better soon

Your recommendations are very helpful, I have CBD capsules and oil which is 300 mg’s. The bottle says that one a day but past couple of days I have been talking one in the AM and one before I go to sleep. So far it seems to help. I have not taken all the prescription meds. My foot is still swollen and very sensitive to the touch and even if the bed sheets touches it it’s still extremely painful. But I can work on that if I’m not taking morphine & oxycodone. What strength of CBD do you take?Yj
