That sounds nasty, I hope that they can find a way of controlling your pain. What do you start with in your treatment

yes when i went to doctors yesterday i asked him to refer me to another hospital for a second opinion...so hopefully it wont be long... but at the moment they arent concerned with the orthopaedic side of things its this CRPS that they are concerned with

it sounds bizarre - was your knee basically grand before you fell? (i know it popped a bit from time to time but it functioned didnt it?)

and from the time you fell you cant move it and now they say you have crps? how would a fall have prompted that i wonder?

Its better to have a firm diagnosis and to at least be treating whatever is wrong properly rather than not knowing what is going on.

You will have more information out of your various appointments that are coming up - you will do fine.

Dont worry - things will work out.
