... evaluate and treat RSD/CRPS. They did a sympathetic nerve block on the 17th. I was in the worst pain of my life the next 3 days I ended up going to emergency room to get relief. A week later I am still in pain and percocets are not cutting it. They did an MRI and came back and said no Hematomas that is it. Suggestions for next step would be great. I am trying to get in somewhere else but they all want to know what has previously been done. I can't wait for the original place to send records I am in pain now!
I had ankle surgery in November. I still have pain now. The Orthopedic sent me to pain management to

HAMMACK06, my name is Liz, you can call the docs office and the hospital and pick up your records yourself. If you call in the morning, tell them you will come in later in the afternoon to get them. (They may charge you a minimal fee). You may have a screw backing out, you may have a nonunion or malunion. Do you already have an appt for your second opinion? Try to call Monday about your records and make sure to ask for any disks that they have. ( they put all CT's and MRI's on disks). Those records belong to you, you paid for them. Best of luck, and hope you can get to the bottom of this and feel better soon!! Write back if you need anything else. L
Am hoping sincerely that this is not RSD/CRPS! It does seem to be a long process to get a diagnosis with this disease but the sooner the better. In my daughter's case, those nerve block injections made the pain worse also so don't let anyone talk you into taking another one! I don't understand why doctor's don't realize this... we were left wondering if she had never had that second injection, would she have gone into remission instead of now being in never-ending, spreading pain! Bless you and best of luck!
