Default Anyone read X-rays here??

Feet 32 years later from military accidents. Images were taken in 2004 I think. They've now developed CRPS. Gonna sell my car for Ketamine Infusion Therapy to try to control the pain.

I know nothing more about either CPRS or ketamine infusion therapy beyond what I just googled.

One thing that I'm now strongly recommending to anyone with joint pain is to at least try CBD oil. It's legal and can be bought OTC.

I've had primary osteoarthritis in my knee for going on 15 years now. No relief from ibuprofen, naproxen, acetaminophen, or any other combination of OTC treatments. I mean no relief. Good relief from the first cortisone shot and none at all from the second. I was staring down the barrel of a partial knee replacement at 36.

Read something on CBD oil, and found a few early studies showing actual effect on arthritis pain and bought a bottle. Two days in and I don't even think about my knee anymore, aside from twinge here and there. Two months in and still going strong. 100% changed my day to day life.

Check out Charlotte's Web, a company that has been making CBD oil for nearly a decade. It runs $70 for a month's supply, but it's been revolutionary for me.

At least try it before you sell your car!

ketamine infusion pump doesnt work. think about a spinal cord stimulator , the new technology is by nevro, which is high frequency dorsal column stimulation. works great for neuropathic pain, including crps I/II. btw looks like you have a calcane fracture.

Curious about this. Do you apply to problem area or just get it in your system.

If all that happened while on active duty, you can file a disability claim and once approved, the VA will pay for it. BTW, your service has already prepaid any medical attention you will even need.

This, I was hurt on active duty and received a disability rating back in 05. They pay for care and I get a check once a month for my injury.

Charlotte's Web is lab certified, etc. I'm sure there other good options - Floyd's is a good one.

They have oral and topical options. The topicals are STINKY, so I stick with the pills. They have both an actual oil and pill. I run with the 35mg ones and am very, very happy.

I came across this, this morning...
Pain cream helps patients eliminate oral medication - WECT TV6-WECT.com:News, weather & sports Wilmington, NC
Might be worth a try...

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Marie Gentry was diagnosed with osteoporosis, neuropathy, and scoliosis. She was living a life full of pain until she read a story on KPLC and met doctor Craig Morton and his creation of Acuplus.

"My husband had to take care of me and take me to all the appointments and everything after 8 and a half months. And I got on the appointment, I got in that car and I've been driving since," Gentry says.

Now with torn rotator cuffs and a continuation of her other painful diagnoses, Gentry rarely takes medication for the pain.

Doctor Craig Morton at the center for orthopedics created Acuplus as a way to help patients who can’t take regular pain medication.

"So many of my patients had limitations to taking medication whether it was trying to fight opioid addiction," Morton says, "Maybe they had side effects affecting the kidney, liver, stomach. Topical pain cream helped our variety of patients over the years and I felt like because I was in a position to treat people all day long, I could see what was working and wasn't working."

As patients tried different creams, Doctor Morton found the perfect mixture. Morton says, "Several of our ingredients have both pain-relieving properties and anti-inflammatory properties. So in addition to that, are ingredients have been known to decrease nerve pain and even being suggested as topical muscle relaxers"

Now, FDA approved, Doctor Morton is watching his patients flourish with the cream.

"It's really helping my patients improve their function,” Doctor Morton says, “They're able to do more and decrease pain and decrease the need for opioids and oral pain medication."

For Gentry, it’s been life-changing. "I don't go anywhere without putting my Acuplus on that's the first thing in the morning or last thing at night and in between in the daytime," she says.

You can purchase Acuplus on www.acuplus.com or at Imperial Health Center for Orthopedics.

Sounds exactly like an infomercial. No risk and your money will be refunded at anytime. All it needs is an energetic bloke with an English accent pitching it.

No. No. No.

It is not FDA approved. It is FDA registered, which means precisely nothing:

https://www.truthinadvertising.org/f...ts-difference/

Ingredients, none of which to the best of my knowledge are FDA approved:
Glucosamine
Magnesium
Arnica
Menthol
Will Bark Extract
Boswellia Serrata Extract
Vitamin B6
Aloe
Vitamin E
Methylsulfonylmenthane
Ilex

I'm not aware of any studies showing any positive pain reduction effect of any of those ingredients. If I'm wrong a-ok, but I'm hesitant of anything where the news is incorrectly citing the FDA review status.

Xray was taken in 2004, damage happened in 86/87, pain started back when it happened and is now causing the crps in both feet. Both feet are almost exactly the same as you can see in the xrays. I've tried getting my dr's to cut them off just to be rid of the pain. NO amount of pain medication will stop what is going on now with these dam feet. They turn all different colors, all toe nails have these weird ridges like ruffles ridges potato chips. But man I tell ya, I have so other diseases that are supposed to be some of the most painful there is. NOTHING compares to these feet, but they don't do it all the time, mainly at night/am. CBD oil is ILLEGAL in GA (for those of you mentioning it) so please don't offer or advise........... PLEASE. You will go to PRISON for a LONG TIME in GA for CBD oil. Weighs out same as marijuana. Not going there. Please don't argue with me, I live here, I've researched, I know. I could get on the CBD oil "list" but you cant have ANY other pain meds, cant own a gun, no CC............. nothing. So I'll pass. Gonna try the Ketamine infusion because it's the go to for CRPS on the CRPS forums. I hear the VA in Colorado is building a facility just for ketamine infustions for PTSD. mwgoldman, your are right about the nerve, it's like walking on hot coals of razor blades. Really bad thing is that my spine is the same way, bone spurs at every level, one so big in my neck it keeps me from swallowing..

Wow - that sounds miserable - I'm very sorry to hear you going through it all.

We'll move the CBD elsewhere, got it.

Best of luck, and I hope you find relief.

Where are you getting this info. Everything I know says CBD is definitely legal in Georgia. Matter of fact, I know multiple people that sell it, including one doctor.
