Thank you both for the information! Everything I’m reading is clearly indicating CRPS. While I don’t have the burning pain, I do have the always frozen foot. I have muscle cramps and spasms. I also have lost dorsiflexion in my right ankle along with atrophy to my ankle and calf. At times I feel like my lower half of my body is freezing, vibrating, cinder blocks that are being electrocuted. During the day when I’m in a sitting position I tend to do better. But walking or even sitting with my legs extended causes severe symptoms.
I’ve tried Lyrica and Trileptal which both worked great, but I was allergic too. So right now they are only treating me with Tramadol and Vicodin. I have never had blocks before. And have been denied due to the IME dr not agreeing with my DX.
I’m already 20 months into my injury and just being diagnosed and they really want to do the blocks to hopefully help treat the CRPS. As we all know the sooner you treat it the better the outcome. But now will be pushed back in further due to fighting this out in court.
My injury was a right ankle avulsion fracture, high ankle sprain. Which ended up needing surgery 11 months into treatment. Symptoms have been there since original injury, and made worse after surgery.
