Re: crps 1 or 2 or both

He stated that treatment is reasonable because I exhibit "many of the findings on physical examination to support Complex Regional Pain Syndrome" and that "early treatment would be more effective".
He stated that he saw the mottled and bluish hue to my skin. I am so thankful that I did get an honest IME doc. So many aren't and I've heard horrific stories.
Now I just need to control the anxiety of waiting for the results of the bone scan until next week. I really hate waiting.
