Hi all. I fell July this year and had high ankle sprain it was very bad I thought it was broke. Weeks went past in cast boot non weight bearing but the pain just stayed the same week on week.. I am a fit person and I usually recover from everything very quickly in my life I am 39. This pain from the start was different. Ten weeks later the consultant didn't know why I was in so much pain he kept saying it was unusual. I attended Physio for a few weeks. Another two consultants have said it's CRPS.i am in agony 24/7. It's like throbbing ache stinging like a open cut wound. Burning but my foot feels like it's in s freezer ? The ankle bones around my foot feel like steal. My foot does like look like the typical CRPS I seen on google. It doesn't go red. But it does go pale. T doesn't swell but my god does it be stiff. I am doing Physio once a week. I am taking lyrica. I find it very hard to take. I can only manage 25-50mg per day as I am extremely sensitive to medication always have been. I have 3 young children. I have no patience wurh them. I wait all day for them to go to bed. Noise makes the pain worse. How is this possible !!! I feel like I am losing my mind. At the moment I am grateful I found this group.
Thx for reading.
