You have a very good question. I did some research and couldn't find anything that would answer it. I also have PAF, we should compare notes sometime.
Thanks for looking.
I'll be gone next week for family reunion. Will appreciate any ideas you
leave on posts when I get back.
What you describe sounds like you HAVE RSD/CRPS and the treatment (TENS/Lyrica) are treatments for RSD.
Aggressive treatment for RSD/CRPS is what is critical. I was diagnosed with RSD 2 months after onset, but the docs refused treatment for another 5 months--now it seems to be a permanent condition. This was due to their ignorance, I believe.
The best scenario for RSD/CRPS is aggressive early treatment; in many people this causes it to go away completely.
Joshua Prager M.D. in LA has some excellent information available on the web about this disease.
Thanks. Fortunately my ortho took my nerve damage seriously, and with the treatment you mentioned it is now nearly completely resolved. Wish you'd had the same result.
