    This is a fantastic resource; thank you so much for organizing these articles. As a CRPS sufferer, I’m interested in any resources that can help me take control of my treatment options. Fortunately I have a great doctor I’m working with, but I like to be an informed consumer of information.

    I have learned a few good ideas about retraing my brain, my hus=band says pain is relative to your brain and thought process and if you were in that much pain you would pass out, I disagree on some level, I now have it in both hands and both feet and at first it was shooting lighting bolths with a littlenstinging, now it is persistant stinging and I felt the buring like boiling water or sunburn on foot for first time. It is progressing and I am on here now because I am scared(I said it) I have been trying to avid that I have it and thought it would go away but it is here to stay. I am in a group and my dogs are my therapy because the get me out of bed everyday to let them out and they constantly want to be per and when you stop they pull your arm to continue petting, so it is like they are therapy dogs. I know this is not the forum but I am new and had to tell someone.It is 3:30 am and I am in pain, can’t sleep. I will be visiting your site more often. Thank you,

    I meant to say my dogs want to be pet. A lot of mistakes cause of pain and I am not patient so I type and did not recheck my spelling and spell check must be off, sorry. I am also dreading the cold weather, my body can not stand the cold if my fingers get to cold sometimes it is difficult to get anyfeeling back in them it feels like I have frost bite.I also live in a bilevel house and the stairs are killing my feet.
    thank you again
