Has Anyone Been Diagnosed With Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

Has Anyone Been Diagnosed With Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

And I was recently told I have RA... waiting to see a specialist

I was diagnosed in 2019 with CRPS Type 1 (no nerve injury). This year that was changed to Type 2 (with nerve injury) after Physical Therapist and Pain Management Dr isolated an injured nerve.

There is no diagnostic test for CRPS, it's a diagnosis of exclusion.
It took my Orthopedic Surgeon 6mos to finally see the symptoms to diagnose me. He immediately had a specialist in to see me..within 30 min. , who was able to confirm diagnosis based on symptoms and history.

I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implant, take Gabapentin and in Physical Therapy. My Pain Management Dr has done some nerve blocks and referred me to a surgeon for a Saphenous Neurectomy (had that done 8 mos ago). I utilize Graded Motor Imagery, Sensory Discrimination, Desensitization and Mirror Therapy.

That doesn't make sense that Pain Management Dr. would refer you to someone else for a nerve block. Unless I misunderstood and you were referred TO Pain Management Dr for the nerve block.

My surgeon told Pain Management Dr to to Nerve blocks after my surgery and no issues getting them done

I am so sorry. I hope everything goes well tomorrow.

The doctor didn't do the block because the wasn't enough information on my referral.. which doesn't make sense.. I have appointment to see him tomorrow to discuss other options.. thank you.
