CRPS Question: Itching

Update-

So the itching was from the new medication Trileptal. My dr upped my dose on Thur and I woke up in complete hives. I called Dr. (on call dr called me back not my dr) right away and they told me to stop taking meds and take Benadryl. Woke up Sunday still in hives and they called in prednisone. I called my dr on Monday and he said to stay off all med for a week to let my system clear and call him back.
I tried going back to work today and couldn’t even make it a few hours. My whole body is shaking, my legs from my waist down feel like vibrating cinder blocks that are being electrocuted. I came home and took a tramadol which helped with the heavy ness in my legs but that’s it. I feel just awful.

I don’t see pain management until 3/28. What else can I take to ease this pain. I seem to be allergic to all the nerve meds.

Have you tried any pain patches with lidocaine? Mine are prescription but it only has 5% lidocaine while over-the-counter has 4% Another thing that has been working for me is Biofreeze.
