Once again on here from cold weather and new info. Looking for other with a similar experience.
I have recently been to a rheumatologist that I've seen for over a year that told me there's nothing more he can do and refered me to pain management. Pain management has had a history of treating me like just another addict except one. One that had diagnosed me with CRPS. That was two years ago but more recently I was able to get the paperwork from them. He had,no problem seeing me. He was rather upset that insurance wasn't paying him what he wanted and dropped my insurance carrier forcing me to pay roughly 1000$ monthly to see him. Or leave and find someone else. I can't swing 1000$ monthly so I left. Finding other doctors to take me seriously is depressingly frustrating. Have an appointment with another pain management doctor and hoping for the best. I guess what I'm here for is I'm curious to see if any other people have come across this CRPS, why we are looked at like a pain enigma and drug seekers when we really Just want to get back to life in general.
