Physically attacked; fell approx. 6 feet onto cement striking entire back (head, shoulders, back, hips, legs and feet). I believe I passed out because they were sitting on top of me when I came to. I believe I was tingly but I was mostly furious. My husband pulled her off of me; I do not know how long I lay there. I was able to get up slowly, but had difficulty moving the next week and spent a lot of time in bed. I did have a CT scan but no damage was found. Within a year, I had the swelling, temp. changes, and some pain. I believe my CRPS is atypical in that regard; I did not have the SEVERE pain and my case was cold-based. I did have the allodynia at times and contraction difficulties. They are saying now, that once the muscle has frayed and wasted; the body rebuilds connective tissue instead of muscle. The pain is difficult to deal with but the nausea about does me in. Current meds Tramadol 50 mg. TID, Nortriptyline 25 mg. daily, Gabapentin 600 mg. TID, and Klonopin 4 mg daily as needed. I also take an anti-depressant per recommendations. Like most of you with CRPS; my life is gone. Thank you for your time...
