Last night I woke up so many times with pain it was not funny..... today I see the pain specialist again, but we are fast running out of medications to trial. He is now talking Dextromethorphan or methadone...... I am not sure if I am ready to go there yet. I also have my hand therapist as well, and my ACC conference, where meds will be discussed I suppose.  

For now thats me.....

Well back from the pain specialist and he is trialing me on this new cream that has had a pretty good success rate with CRPS patients overseas, not to get rid of the pain completely but to take away the worse of it.... He does not really want to go the methadone route yet which I am stoked about. I am also going to use Tramadol again but he has said there has been a rare group of people that have a reaction with it while on Amitripltilane so I have to be very careful, when I start that combination. We are also going to apply to ACC for a wheelchair.

I am knackered but have my case conference soon so better syke myself up for that. We talked about acupuncture but he thinks it is to risky the chances of it going horribly wrong he thinks is not worth it with CRPS.


  1. This is so hard. I hope there is something that will work for you without major side affects.

    I think you are amazingly brave as you carry on with things as best you can. Hope you get a better sleep today.


  2. I don't know about the Dextro .. but methadone is more addictive than hard drugs that people are given methadone to try & kick.

    I hope they can come up with something for you, I cannot imagine how awful & frustrating is must be for you being in so much pain practically all the time.

    Good luck with the specialist & ACC.

  3. A case for medical marijuana me thinks
