Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Posted by @skatergirl in Brain & Nervous System, Apr 23, 2012

Has anyone been treated at the Mayo Clinic in MN, for CRPS? I have had the condition for 2 years, and am now seeking an appointment there. I've done all therapies, and recently had 2 spinal cord stimulators implanted. Still having severe flares, that the stimulators do not cover. Just curious to see if anyone has had an experience with Mayo and this condition.

Hi! I'm so glad you posted! I just joined this site yesterday as I am calling the Mayo Clinic in the morning to inquire about getting an appointment for help with my CRPS (RSD). I have had it full body for the past seven years and have tried everything except HBOT. There HAS to be something to help live day to day with this! I'll be eagerly watching to see other posts.

Glad to hear from you. I'm interested in the Mayo Clinic Pain Relief book. I'll see if our library has it first.

Hi SkaterGirl, I just wanted to tell you that I talked at great length today with a representative from the Jacksonville Mayo Clinic. To keep it short, because I have a seven year diagnosis of CRPS, there is a chance they would allow me into the Pain Management and possibly physical therepy programs.. I am extremely disappointed, as I have worked on "Pain Management" for seven years. There is no need for me to travel four hours for PM when I have excellent access to it right here where I live. I was so foolish to let myself have hope that there just might be some relief from this torture that I may not have known about. I was given a phone number that my doctor has to call to talk to the admissins department. He said my doctor and Admissions would work out a plan for me. MY doctor doesn't agree with me going to the Mayo Clinic, so that's that. Good Luck to you!

I'm new to Mayo clinic. I have been in pain management for years now and my doctor was just informed by my radiologist that I have CRPS or RSDS. I just had surgery on my foot for Norton's Nueroma, and the pain just isn't subsiding. Best of luck to you and if you have any suggestions for me it would be greatly appreciated.
