I Don't know anyone who could do it alone!
I don't have CRPS, or RSD, but a dear friend has had for over 25 years. Her doctor at the time thought it was something quacks used to get money from .insurances. Did they tell you there is a 6 months window if the spinal blocks are to work. From the time you first have it? Her doctor was devastated for what his not diagnosing her sooner, put her past the window.
She was almost alone, but had small child and her husband died. She does not work and lives in desert, so no snow. Things are really hard for disabled. She has an implanted pain blocker, with battery pack on out side. This helps.
She now gets Social Security for disabled, and some one to come in 4 days a week, for 3 hours. Her child is a teenager now, And has baby, and going to school. She gets Medi-Cal, I think it is Medi-Caid, in other States.
Have you talked to anyone about the pain blocker, she has two, since the RSD has spread. The littlest trauma, and there is the RSD.or CRPS! She doesn't like what the initials spell, so she stills uses RSD.
I will pray you find the help you need. I will try and find out what the implant is called. I know the company that supplies it, works closely with the doctor.
I know you didn't want suggestions, But I Just couldn't Help Myself ! ! :-(
This probably didn't help much, but I just wanted to give you a Hug; Also let you know your not alone. Even though you are physically.
