    Sorry to hear your struggling at the moment, Hopefully other sufferes will be able to advise you better but I would suggest researching as much as you can. Involve your family and try to get to understand what your having to cope with and try to remain positive.

    I'm sorry but in 77% of us it spreads and/or starts in other parts of the body from a trivial trauma., mine started in hte right hand, the use of a sensitivity pin on the arm caused it to spread from below wrist upto elbow. Then it started in both legs

    Most of the US top specialists have stop using them. Survey found that in 66% of cases they caused CRPS at the incision sites. Many had to undergo further surgerys because of the wires moving or batterry problems and these caused further spreads. Some said that even though they had new CRPS sites the pain was still lowered but after 3 years the effectiveness was reduced to virtually zero

    As long as you are aware of the risks beforehand then it's your choice. I have to fight this with no drugs or any form of medication, I am als one of the 7 - 8% whose wounds may never heal, flying ant bites on my legs on 22/7/11 took until Jan of thisd year to heal, so I won't risk any operation making things worse so I would never take the chance of an SCS making things worse

    You do realise this will only reduce the pain levels, it will not affect any of the other 15 symptoms.
