If I Tell You This...i have complex regional pain syndrome type 3. or stage 3, whatever. i know this due to the simple fact that i have been through at least 4 different specialists in the past year and a half. i look back over that year and think, i used to be normal, now im not. let me explain
it started out as nothing to worry about. a slight ache in my right knee. no worries right, nothing to fear about pain? i was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with mono-arthritis. hospital put it down to that.
following weeks, went to physio to see what they thought. slipped disc in my back. ok, now im worrying. had 12 sessions to relieve the pain but to no success.
following weeks. receive letter from hospital for an appointment to see a rheumatologist or rheumatoid guy whatever. they study bones, muscles and other bodily functions. he diagnosed me with CHRONIC REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME.
months later, had bone scan. no secure plan there, no good results. so go back to phsyio. slipped disc in m back again. by this point im tired of it all.
move to new city for better doctors. go to pain clinic. go see neurologist. i got told my legs were wasting away and still are.
see private neurologist and get told it 2 things. migraine syndrome and MOTOR SENSORY SYNDROME. now im panicking. what to do? its life time permanent.
go to a new doctor. now diagnosed with COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME.
studying online, i am in stage 3 of it. wasting away legs. bad pain. and the 3rd one i dont know.
it should only be in 40-60 year olds, why me, im 19?!
all of the hard facts that ive read for treatments are the things i have been doing now for a year, but with little success.
anyone reading this that knows something to help fight it, please fan me and talk with me, im at a loss. im doing everything that ive been told by doctors, but to no prevail. HELP!!!!!
thats my story for this. i have it for good. im 19. it should only be in 40-60 year olds, why me?
