  • CRPS/RSD

    I am a 16 year old female who has been suffering from CRPS for 2 years now. Originally the illness started in my right foot/ankle, then spread up my leg, into my hips, up to my shoulders, down my arm, and into my hand.

After I tackled the player, my neck began to hurt severely, and I could not turn my head even the slightest amount....

More recently I had a red bump on the corner of my forehead on the same side for a month. Scratching it and messing with it made it form a head and I squeezed it out. It wasn't puss it looked like snot. Clear thick fluid mixed with blood. My Dr. just diagnosed me with eustacien tube dysfunction. Could that cause problems like the bump and....

    Pain/Alzheimers

    Many years ago I had read an article pertaining to pain disappearing or know longer exist in Alzheimer patients. It stated that the pain receptors lack of better term shorted out thus making the pain gone. It stated that the injury did not disappear it was just that the receptors in the brain do not register it as pain. Is there any more info on this subject as I would like to be able to discuss this with my Alz support group? Thanks
