I broke my right wrist (radius) 8 weeks ago and today i was diagnosed with crps, despite my wrist (radius) still being fractured. I was taken out of my cast at 5 weeks with no examination or x-ray and told my wrist was healed. I returned to A+E 9 days later after trying to carry out suggested wrist exercises because i was still in severe pain. After an examination and x-ray from an A+E doctor i was told my wrist was infact still broken and i shouldnt have been doing any of the excercises. I was put back in a cast and told to attend the fracture clinic 2 days later. I attended the fracture clinic and was yet again taken out of the cast and was told by a consultant i had osteoparosis at 27years old, and this is why my bone had not healed (they refused to consider the possibility that it hadnt healed because i was without a cast and had being moving it as suggested). I requested a second opinion and was reffered to a different consultant which i attended today. This particular consultant had disagreed completely with the osteoparosis diagnosis, so much so he diagnosed me with CRPS. This has left me very confussed as everything i have researched has indicated that CRPS occurs after a Fracture has healed.
Is this possible?
