I injured my right hand by slamming it against a toliet. ( I used to clean houses and hit it pretty hard ) I was diagnosed with CRPS. My doctor put me on Lyrica. I had horrible side effects from it and had to stop taking it. I was also put on Perocet. Well I started to abuse the pain medicine and just recently got out of treatment for that. I am on Suboxone. It helps with the pain some. I'm back at work full time and having a hard time with the pain. But I don't want to take narcotis anymore. My question is does anybody have any suggestions on what I can do? I don't see my doctor for a few weeks. Also I have extremely dry skin in the web of my hand. I use lotion like there is no tomorrow and it doesn't work. Now almost the whole palm of my hand is red. Not dry like the web. I've done some research and can't find anything about dry skin being a symptom. Anybody with the samy symptoms or anybody who has any advise, please respond. Thank you very much in advance. Just typing this hurts sooooo bad.
How are you?Treatment for CRPS or Complex regional pain syndrome is aimed at relieving painful symptoms and include any of the following: physical therapy, psychotherapy, sympathetic nerve block, medications (including topical analgesic drugs, antiseizure drugs; antidepressants, corticosteroids, and opioids), surgical sympathectomy, spinal cord stimulation, and intrathecal drug pumps. Discuss these with your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
