I have suffered from CRPS for several years. I stay active, work full time, have meaningful family and friend relationships, and participate in an online support group. Still feeling isolated when it comes to dealing with this disease everyday. Suggestion

In brief: Difficulty with CPRS

Many cases of CPRS occur after trauma -arm or leg, a crush injury, fracture or amputation.
Diagnosis is based on a physical exam and your medical history. There's no single test to confirm it. A second opinion is often valuable along with tests to rule out other treatable issues like bone disease or infection. Other than meds, biofeedback, TENS, or spinal cord procedures may help.
