I've been diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome but I really dont think that its type 1--I think that its closer to being type 2. This disease has taken over my life, if you call being in pain 24/7 a life. I dont think that the doctors around here are sure of how to treat it. Most of them just want to do a surgery that they know isnt going to help but most of the time only make things worse. They really need to listen to what we the patients are telling them & Im sure that the office visit would be better for both of us. I would like to hear from other people who have experienced the same things as I have with the doctors. I know that we all have to have some horror stories with the doctors. I really hope that we are able to trade stories & maybe some helpful information. Thanks for letting me ramble but hope to hear from some of you soon.
