Yes I am under the care of a pain mgt specialist. I am currently on a combination of medications--both narcotic and non-narcotic to help control my pain. Even at the high doses I am on they do not control my pain very well. I have tried every other treatment available for RSD/CRPS that insurance would cover or that I could afford. (Nerve blocks, physical therapy, massage therapy, stellate ganglion blocks, IV ketamine infusions, high dose steroid therapy, a spinal cord stimulator, etc.) Other than meds there are no other treatments available at this time. There is research being done so hopefully there will be new therapies on the horizon.
