Customer Question
Please give me information...

Please give me information about CRPS, a nerve condition

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No to both questions. I am asking for my grandson who is about to have the injection into the back to relieve his condition.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Grandson had extensive bone breakage in his foot that in repairing apparently agitated some nerves bringing about CRPS.

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, CRPS, formerly known as RSD Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, is a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System, and more specifically, the Sympathetic Nervous System.

The pain is characterized as constant, extremely intense, and out of proportion to the original injury.

The pain is typically accompanied by swelling, skin changes, extreme sensitivity, and can often be debilitating.

It usually affects one or more of the four limbs but can occur in any part of the body and in over 70% of the victims it spreads to additional areas

Let me know if you have other questions.

I am sorry about your grandson. is he seeing a pain management doctor or a neurologist for treatment?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
