Vignettes: Neurologist Check Up and Sympathetic Nerve Block

I went back to NYC for a routine follow up with my neurologist and for my first in a series of sympathetic nerve blocks.

The neurologist said my CRPS/RSD was “unchanged” since my last visit 3 months ago, but was hopeful for positive results from the nerve block.

The nerve block procedure was not fun, by any stretch, but the results were definitely worth it. The doctor said that it was a success. The next step is to work on a treatment plan, schedule a series of more injections, and hopefully drive the CRPS into remission. Or at least significantly decrease the severity.


My hope is high and fingers are crossed.
