I have CRPS too, my story on how I got it is much different than yours though.
My 5 year anniversery just passed
Burning? My injury is to my dominant arm, however that burning I actually feel it in the winter on my left foot, same side as my arm, it burns like my Allodynia so it burns "to me" on the "top" of my skin and not so much on the inside, but my injured arm burns BOTH on the inside along with nerve shocks, and on the top of my skin like Allodynia.
Lucky you!!!! You have it for only a year, it took my doctor 2 1/2 yrs to diagnose me, you know depending upon an early recognition and proper diagnosis of CRPS early on is KEY to REMISSION, so I don't really know your full situation, but remission is quite possible from what I understand ONLY by an early diagnosis.
People can get CRPS/RSD from stubbing their toe, very common with surgeries where the doctor accidently nicks or damages a nerve. Very common with car accident victims too, soldiers in the wars over the centuries I believe had it too, except they called it something like Causaglia (sorry for the spelling) or something like that.
With me, my arm doesn't need to be the color red to burn the daylights outta me, when I flare my skin looks like a lobster, a few years ago when we had a harsh winter, I did a quick and painful experiemnet, I went outside with just a t-shirt and within MINUTES my affected arm stiffened like petrified wood and my ENTIRE arm turned purple not red, purple, while my other arm acted like it was just cold with a normal skin color.
May god bless you, I know EXACTLY the pain your feeling, my best suggestion is to take a look at the "Calmare" machine, as soon as it's available near where I live and I'm satisfied with it's amazing claims, I will most likely give it a try, even though "they" say it's harmless, the LAST thing I need is having more grief from people in the medical field who can easily mess you up.
Do your research, make sure your treating doctors actually KNOW what their doing to help you cope and live with it, and also llok at remission, you might still have a chance.
