In March of 2010, my daughter was involved in a serious car accident that left her battling the chronic neurological pain disorder Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD) and changed our lives forever. Follow us along on our journey. Our suitcases have no room for negativity.
I’m sure so many of you (if not all) can relate to the fact that once diagnosed, you had to fish around from books to the internet to pamphlets in order to simply wrap-your-head around what was happening to your body, and in order to become informed about your pain.
Which is why upon reading this book review (click on the headline), I immediately clicked order! Of course, it’s not a miraculous encyclopedia filled with all the information we could ever dream of… but FINALLY it’s an indispensable resource to provide us with a better understanding of our pain and how to defeat it. YAY!
According to the review: written in user-friendly language, it has sections on back and neck pain, headaches, arthritis, cancer pain, fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain (including CRPS/RSD). Among many other things, you can learn about nutritional supplements, the importance of different therapies, medications and side-effects, the benefits of multidisciplinary treatments, interventional treatments (ex: nerve blocks), and psychological treatments, etc.
Oh, and did I mention it’s being endorsed and recommended by the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA)?
