Other treatment: There is a long list of medications that can be tried for crps. Some examples include: steroids, neuromodulators such as cymbalta, lyrica (pregabalin). Sometimes a sympathetic blockade can relieve the problem and this would be done by pain management.

Eval by PM&R: Would be advisable to see a physiatrist. Would consider physical therapy, ice/heat pack, nsaid if no aspirin allergy, and hep program. Also, should be aware of posture and activities that could be worsening problem. So if picking heavy objects should avoid it. Also, consider ergonomic adjustment in work environment so that neck is in neutral position. Cervical pillow could also be bought.

Different causes: First of all, would like to know if any history of trauma prior to onset? If so, xray should be done to rule out a fracture. What bothers you the most:moving the neck or moving the shoulder? The problem could be coming from the neck, shoulder or a combination of both. Things to consider are Cervical disc bulge, cervical spondylosis,, radiculopathy, shoulder capsulitis, RTC tendinitis, etc.

Thank you. I've had seizures with unknown etiology lately too. Normal brain scans and EEG. Haven't thought about cardiology. My potassium was critical
