Are You Suffering with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

Woman in Pain

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a type of pain that usually develops following an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack. The reason some people develop the syndrome is not understood; but what is known is that it is a type of nerve malfunction and the pain you experience is disproportionate to the original event. Not only is the pain chronic, instead of being short term as expected, but it can be severe enough to become debilitating. Since CRPS is not well understood, it may appear there is no relief in sight. This is not true. Effective treatments for CRPS are available and can improve your quality of life.

Who Gets CRPS?

Heart attacks and strokes are more common in older populations, but surgeries and injuries can happen at any age. There is also a possibility it can happen for no reason at all. Because of this, CRPS can be found throughout a wide range of age groups.

What Are the Symptoms of Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome?

Symptoms can vary from person to person and may change for an individual over time. Occasionally, the pain can spread from its original site to affect somewhere else. Limbs and extremities, such as the arms, legs, feet and hands, are usually affected. The symptoms of CRPS include:

  • Burning and throbbing in a limb or extremity
  • Painful swelling of limbs, extremities or joints
  • Sensitivity to heat, cold and touch
  • Skin changes, such as temperature, color and texture
  • Muscle spasms or tremors

Early treatment is the most effective way to improve CRPS, but even if you have experienced the pain for a while, it is important to seek specialized care for pain relief.

Joy P.

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

Tiffany

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
