Sat, Mar 30 7:45pm · CRPS Question: Itching in Chronic Pain

One more thing: have you been able to find a doctor to help get pressure off of your neck or back – or able to try an inversion table? I failed to ask that in my post. These might appear to be long shots, but if you are able, you could find relief. Blessings to you!

What you are generally describing is similar to what I experienced when I first moved to Texas. Ultimately, what solved the problem was the continued use of nasal saline, either Ocean, or generic saline nasal spray. Please try this before you spend any more money on diagnosis.

I must confess that I would not rely on the absolute correctness of your diagnosis. Think more along the lines of symptoms. I am not diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, but have spinal stenosis with foraminal narrowing, osteoarthritis, et al. and have been allowed the co-diagnosis of fibromyalgia. All of this was brought about by a gall bladder infection and the resulting sepsis. If I cease taking a regular dosage of Gabapentin (and on occasion otherwise), my skin begins to tingle and then to burn. It can be sheer agony. Pain patches and cream do nothing, nor do the latest medicines that doctors proffer. I would be reluctant to try Benadril because of ties to dementia or similar. You might want to try a good CBD oil extract. Your doctor may have missed some food that you are allergic to. Stop eating processed food and food that you don't make yourself. It sounds like your autoimmune system is overreacting to the injury as a type of infection.

This is a new observation based on a recent study at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. These findings are interesting, but not ironclad, as the testing was done on mice – for the first time on females and males, which is what led to the findings. Have a read and let me know what you think! https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00895-3

Sat, Jan 19 2:43pm · Depression and Chronic Pain in Depression & Anxiety

@parus Thought I would throw in my very recent findings (last Thursday) about CBD gummies. There is a local shop that I buy CBD from. When I inquired about the gummies for someone else who can't stand to use the straight oil, they admonished me not to – that the gummies don't work well. (They sell alot of CBD.) For a shop whose very existence depends on what they sell locally to tell me this about CBD gummies speaks volumes to me. Look at the softgels if you can't stand the oil, but I'll take the advice of those who know first hand from their customers. I'm sure brands matter, but I haven't discovered the "magic" of which one is best, and even when I find out, I won't be able to share that publicly here. Thanks for listening.

Less sweet is a preference, but if you want to kick this into a higher gear and have the budget, use manuka honey. That's the beauty of a recipe – it's just a beginning.

Absolutely! Ginger is often available the same way as turmeric, and both compliment one another. The only thing I can say about ginger is that it can by pretty spicy, so take note on that one.

Sounds okay, as long as you cook it 5 minutes or use a similar recipe as above. You might opt to increase the turmeric if that suits your taste because you may be taking in smaller amounts using ice cubes to put in coffee or tea.
