I have crps and rsd, This area has no idea what this is and needs to be more informed.Ii was treated poorly in this area for it. All they think i am is a med junky, and I am not! I have been dealing with this for 4 years and know more about this nerve damage then the doctors in this area. I think the doctors should read up more on the new kinds of chronic illnesses than push people away. Thank you
