CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) after breaking wrist
Last year i fell and broke my wrist. i opted not to have surgery, although now i know i should have.
When i started therapy i was diagnosed with CRPS on first visit. my dr denies it, but i have all symptoms when i researched it.
CRPS is now mostly, but not totally gone after one year. my main annoyance with it is that it gets twice as cold as the other hand. when will this go away? Often my other hand will be room temperature and the one with CRPS will feel like it is 20 degrees. Does this mean circulaton is poor? it also gets very pale when cold and reddish when it is warm.
I have also read that it is autoimmune, but not sure how that can be when the break started it (due to immobilization)
