Other than medications what can I do. I need help. I have EDS and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. I’m in the worst flare up that I’ve ever had. I will take any advice no matter how small it is. I can’t manage the pain.

      Have you done desensitization yet? I rub my affected areas with different textures to desensitize the nerves. That's usually the most I can do when I'm in a major flare. Otherwise, cardio helps a ton! A light jog goes a long way, as it releases endocannabinoids that can relieve pain.

      Ice packs make the pain worse from my experience so stay away from them. Heat pads and have you tried CBD?

      I would switch between heating pads and ice packs? I've tried Epsom salt baths in hot water help, and if you have muscle relaxers that's great. I'm sorry you're having a bad flare up. 😢
