Even though I haven’t been officially diagnosed by Neuro specialist, I have seen several doctors who say CPRS type 1 is what I have.
I am 2.5 months post ankle fracture now. 4 weeks after fracture I was experiencing severe pain and burning from ankle to calf. My foot was dark purple. I went to emerg and they gave me stronger pain Meds and told me it was the cast that was hurting me and gave it extra padding.
Fast forward to now, 2.5 weeks. I don’t have that same pain anymore.
I am not on any meds at all for pain bc it I don’t feel like it’s intense enough to need it.
I have almost every symptom of CPRS. This is where I am confused.
Initially it was so terrible and intense I couldn’t get out of bed.
Now I can walk ( with a limp) and no Meds.
But I have discolouration to lower leg and foot.
Swelling, tightness, shiney skin
Pins and needless at times
Weakness in the leg ( but I was also immobilized 4 weeks )
Sweating on the bottom of my foot ( and not on my good foot)
And my ankle foot is HOT all the time. Radiates heat.
So.. is this the calm before the storm? Or maybe a lesser case ? Or maybe not CPRS?
I do not have sensitivity to touch and I do not have intense pain.
Also not sensitive to hot or cold.
The waiting for specialists is driving me mad. If it’s supposed to be treated early, I am running out of time ...
