Hi everybody! I'm reaching out as a mom of an amazing young woman (18 years old) who has suffered with widespread CRPS since she was 10. She has undergone inpatient rehab x 6 weeks and again for 2 weeks over the years utilizing the "Sherry" method-bootcamp-hell but, although she would initially show improvement, she has always relapsed. We have done it all: PT, OT, she tries to exercise every day, gabapentin, ibuprofen, flexeril, and oxycodone 20 mg 4-6-x daily. The meds arent working, the exercise isnt working, and she is miserable. I feel we are at a crossroad. She is getting more tolerant to the opioids, but in this day and age, I fear that she is going to be unable to recieve the opioids, and she will be in deep trouble then. Hers the question. Does suboxone work for the extreme pain that is CRPS? I'm worried it wont be enough. I also worry that she will be labeled an addict, which she definitely is not. If this med is tried and if it fails, I fear it will effect her ability to recieve opioids later. The anti-opioid environment has us all very frightened. I gratefully await your input.
