I've been following this thread for a little while and after this week I thought I would share my story.
Two and a half years ago I was in a car accident, I was driving. After the accident I had a few pains, lower back and neck but the worse pain was in my heels, both were bruised but X Rays show nothing - after a couple of weeks the pain persisted, I was getting cramps in my toes and shooting pain in the soles of my feet. I went to Physio where they said that due to being hyper mobile I had stretched all the nerves and tendons in my feet. I have since been to a orthopaedic surgeon, two pain specialists and a Hypermobility specialist who are at a loss as to what is wrong (they have ruled out CRPS) at first they were thinking that perhaps it was psychological but my feet swell up and change colour. I've looked at the symtoms of CRPS and I have a lot but it's been two and half years now and even though I get a lot of symptoms they aren't present all the time. I have also been to a psychologist who doesn't believe the pain is psychologically.
I have taken a number of pain killers Lyrica, tramadol, nortryplene but they do little to help. I've also had an MRI which was clear, so far I have been told that I have idiopathic chronic pain
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice or ideas as to what to look for in regards to getting a diagnosis. I feel like I'm running out of options.
Thanks for reading
