hello! i was diagnosed with crps almost a year ago. they have tried conservative care-lots of meds and physical therapy. the meds are really doing a number on me and my new doctor is hopefully going to find me a comfortable level where i'm not falling over or getting sick!
the newest treatment has been stellate ganglion nerve blocks. i've had 3 but the doctor says i would need about 3 to 7 more and then also on the left side since it has affected both hands and arms. now he's suggesting a neurostimulator implant or something. he said the insurance and previous doctors waited too long to treat and now it's in advanced stages. every movement is painful and sleeping at night is rare. he gave me pain killers and something to knock me out but it just makes me really tired the next day. i'm so scared of this implant thing and i hear you cant ever havve the whole thing removed. sorry aboout the tremors. its acting up and its affecting my hands. i'll haave to end this with...scared and wonddering if i should keep going with the blbocks or drop it gfor the spinal cord stmiulator? anyone have any thouughts/? scared
