I have been diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and my life is agony EVERYDAY! I am in physical therapy 5 days a week to try and treat it agressively and leave there most days in tears. I am seeing specialists in Virginia for my back that was injured also with my accident but my CRPS WAS being treated by a specialist at John Hopkins. My phsician at Hopkins has decided not to proceed with any more Sympathetic Nerve Blocks due to their ineffectiveness and the excruciating experience of getting them done. I am now being considered for a Spinal Cord Stimulator and have some mixed feelings. Most of me wants anything that will reduce/rid this constant pain but there is a small part of me that is frightened. I am terrified at the thought of having something implanted in my body and connected to my spinal cord. Anyone who reads this and can provide a little more information on your experience with your surgery please feel free to share. Ex: surgery details, hospital experience, anesthesia, post-op recovery, etc.
