I was recently diagnosed with CRPS (formerly called RSD), which has left my left leg in constant pain and swells up to where walking is difficult. Medications do not work, and other forms of treatment are to surgically implant a nerve stimulator on my spine, which I hope to never do. I have done endless research and will be seeking treatment from a Neurologist in Fayetteville, Arkansas that specializes in CRPS and does less invasive treatments.This is a very devastating diagnosis as it can spread very rapidly throughout my body if I don’t treat early (reason I took the first appointment available). If caught in its early stages, there is a better chance of remission if treatment is done soon. This is not something I
have taken lightly as the cost of treatment is $19,000 (of which insurance will not cover since it’s considered alternative treatment); this amount does not cover travel/lodging expenses.
My first treatment begins: June 18th
Tentative last day of treatment: August 23rd
My treatments will be Monday – Thursday. I will have 3-7 appointments a day (up to 6 different types of treatments for optimal healing).
Thanks to all of you for supporting me during this journey back to health. I look forward to coming back
stronger than ever.
