I have been suffering from CRPS in both feet for about 2 1/2 years. I have took many different medicines to try & relieve the pain. Currently im being prescribed; 2400mg Gabapentin, 240mg Dihydracodine, 400mg Tramadol (sr), Paracetamol, 20mg Oxynorm (Oxycodone). All are the maximum dose i take in 1 day. In July 2006 i went to the Pain Clinic at City Hospital Birmingham to have a Guanethidine Block. This block gave me about 80% pain relief for about 5 weeks. I am currently undergoing a series of 5 of these blocks (1 per week) to my right foot. I had my 3rd one today. It is a painful procedure to say the least. Today the pain clinic increased the Guanethidine, this caused a very bad burning sensation whilst the tourniquet was around my lower knee. I am hoping that the series of blocks give me alot of relief. I have been out of work for 2 years due to the severe unpredictable pain. I would like to chat with any others that suffer from CRPS (RSD). If you fancy a chat then you are welcome to email me on ****
