Welp, my physical activity attempts resulted in a pretty sharp flare up today. I pushed myself a little too hard and I’m handling the consequences. Anyone else have a hard time not ruminating on your frustrations when having a forced recovery day? I’m proud of myself for pushing myself to work out, but learning where my limits are is a painful experience!! Just needed to unload this somewhere I’d be understood and validated.
I've got several medical issues including full body RSD. My symptoms are getting harder and harder to deal with. I have a husband and 4 kids (2 still at home)they are in high school and super busy, but they are still super helpful when they're home. I am in need of help even with basic needs but can't afford full time care. Are any of you aware of any options available? I live in FL if that helps.
I was newly diagnosed with CRSP. As hard of a diagnosis this is to receive I was actually relieved to know that there was a medical diagnosis for what I was going threw and I was not going crazy. I have tried to find others with to discuss treatment options and see how to live with this long term and still be able to have the best quality if life.

Hello, my name is Kendra and I’m a relatively new CRPS patient. I do not know anyone that suffers from this and I’m interested in talking with people that truly understand.
Hi Everyone Dealing with RSD/CRPS. A long time ago I had found a book that I had each of my family members read. I cannot remember the name. But I do remember the THE AUTHOR... LISA COPEN or LISA COPENHAGEN My memory is worse when I'm in a flare up. I also loose things in my 🏡. My short term memory really SUCKS. My long term... well that's actually okay... I can remember where all my furniture was in my 🏠 before I left CA and eventually divorced my Xhusband.
Just curious what others r doing for their complex regional pain syndrome aka… RSD. What treatment u r getting if anything is new that I don’t know about.

My crps has traveled into my face . Any advice on how I can get some relief . I have a stimulater but unfortunately it only reaches my right side of my face (which I’m greatfull for ) but I also need relief on my left . Dr has me on Topiramate 50 mg twice a day I imagine that will be upped again my next appointment . This is the first this in the 20 years that I have had crps that I have been on a long term medication. I am allergic to all most all pain meds and have very bad reactions to all of the other meds they have tried. Only 1 of my drs offered ketamine and she no longer practices in my state . Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
has anyone tried ketamine infusions and/or a spinal cord stimulator? my pain management doc has suggested both and I wonder if anyone has had success with either
Looking for any new treatments for RSDS/CRPS. I’ve had RSDS since I was 15. At 19 I had my first Medtronic pain pump implanted. I’m about to be 43 and have decided to have it removed. I know there could be treatments I haven’t tried. I’m open to ALL suggestions. Thank you
I was wondering if anyone else has their CRPS occur several times and then go away. Since I was about 10 I've had it after injuries about once every two years ranging from lasting two months, to around two years. I was also recently diagnosed with an underactive parasympathetic nerves system, which affects my ADHD, Anxiety, and explains some of the CPRS pain. I feel like if I were less clumsy my CPRS wouldn't be as bad, but I also don't want to live my life wrapped in bubble wrap just to avoid a flare up.
Other than meds, are there treatments that will help me
I’m very new to living with RSD - I used to be a Master Swimmer and of everything from my “before” life, I miss swimming the most. I’ve only been dealing with this for about three months now… has anyone else been able to return to at least modified exercise?
