Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

My husband had a single level fusion in May that was quite successful, but at post op he was diagnosed with this hideous disease.  When I google it I get so scared. Luckily, it's early and treatment may be able to reverse it. He had his first nerve block yesterday and got a little bit of relief but the top of his foot feels like it is on fire.  Dropping a tissue  on it makes him wince, so sox, slippers or a bedsheet are a challenge.  He doesn't leave the house, any walking or standing leaves his legs numb.  Does anyone have any experience with this????

    I am so sorry your husband is having to go through this. Since this may involve abnormal inflammation or nerve dysfunction, treatment usually consists of medications, heat or cold therapy or physical therapy. Hopefully, with the treatments, he will be able to find relief.
