What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

For those who have not heard, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a  neuro-logical disease whose “trademark” is “pain out of proportion to the original injury”, that usually being a sprain, fracture, or surgery site accompanied by
shock. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders it most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot). It is believed to be caused by damage to, or malfunction of, the peripheral and sympathetic nervous system. Shortly we will discuss pain management for CRPS, and discover new treatments for CRPS in 2021, but first let’s learn more about chronic regional pain syndrome.

CRPS is characterized by
prolonged or excessive pain, changes in skin color, temperature, and/ or swelling, abnormal sweating and nail and hair growth, joint stiffness, and impaired muscle strength and movement. The pain is excruciating and either shooting, sharp, or burning. Some sufferers have mild symptoms and recover over time. Sadly, most will not recover and will suffer from long lasting pain and disability. This chronic pain in turn causes insomnia, anxiety, mood swings, and depression.

“CRPS Is Relentless and Unpredictable”

Not much is actually known about this uncommon affliction, so diagnosis can be hard and time consuming. The first six months is critical for diagnosis and treatment or severe atrophy sets in.

As described by one sufferer:

“CRPS is a monster. It shows no mercy. It comes out of nowhere and is relentless. It is unpredictable. It is a daily struggle, trying to stay positive and rise above it.”

One poor young man suffered such terrible and relentless pain that he finally requested amputation of the afflicted hand. Sadly even that did not work.

Train Your Brain and Reverse Chronic CRPS8 Natural Remedies for Pain Relief and Management of CRPS

Unless you really dig (and in the right places) you will find no publicized cure for this horrible affliction. I have researched pain management techniques and ways
of easing the pain, albeit temporarily. We will list these shortly.

But a man named Roger G. Carlsen learned how he could train his brain and reverse chronic CRPS. He is now symptom-free and living normally! Here is what he did. We highly recommend reading this!

Mr. Carlsen’s regiment requires much discipline and determination, but is clearly effective.

Here are some natural remedies that will give at least temporary relief in the meantime, and whether or not you decide to try Roger G. Carlsen’s method.

8 Natural Remedies for Pain Relief and Management of CRPS

1. If you are worried about the effects of pharmaceutical pain relief meds try magnesium. It helps to reduce pain signals to the brain. Magnesium is an ingredient in Epsom salts and they are well known in bath form to reduce
inflammation and alleviate pain. Soak the affected limb in Epsom salts and you will feel the difference, if only temporarily.

2. Vitamin C aids in neutralizing free radicals and helps to synthesize collagen which helps in joint pain.

3. Try dry needling. It focuses on trigger points to help reduce pain and also gives you more range of motion in the affected limb.

(like those laid out by Mr. Carlsen). Deep breathing exercises help to relax your mind and reduce stress and tension.

5. There is no particular diet for CRPS sufferers but certain foods are anti-inflammatory and thus
beneficial for easing symptoms. These are classed as “the four F’s”, which refers to fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, fish, and
fowl. The harmful foods are “the four C’s” meaning cookies, cakes, chocolate, and cocktails. This is pretty self-explanatory.

6. Temperature therapy has been found to ease pain associated with CRPS. Heat relaxes the muscles and warms the cool skin that often accompanies this affliction. Just be careful not to apply too much heat for too long and NEVER apply ice or cold therapy as it can worsen the symptoms.

7. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units are a great help. They are small battery operated devices with electrodes that are placed on the skin. They work by sending small electrical currents to the affected nerve
endings. This effectively blocks pain signals from travelling to the brain.

8. Neuro Regen is a relatively new nerve support herbal formulation that is being used by some CRPS sufferers. It is made up of Lion’s Mane, Epimedium (known as Horny Goat Weed oddly enough), Velvet Bean, Sulforaphane, and piperine.

These ingredients together protect nerves, stimulate nerve regrowth,
and help to balance the nervous system.

  1. Yeah, I will be the first to say, the CRPS looks like a really nasty condition. I mean, it looks really debilitating and hopeless, especially given that traditional medicine not only struggles to identify it, but also is absolutely incapable of treating it.

    I love that Roger G. Carlsen guy. I love when people don’t give up and surrender to being a victim with conditions like this. Because it’s so incredibly easy to. I love that they persevere and not only that. I genuinely appreciate them for the knowledge and a way for a cure that they pass on. 🙂

    I will check out those other resources as well. Cheers.

    • Thank you, Matiss. Yes, I don’t know if I would be able to focus through that kind of pain. I can’t imagine. Mr. Carlsen is surely due some serious praise.

  2. I found this very informative as I do suffer from pain from old injuries. I have been using medicine prescribed by doctors. I must say I am not that happy with this as it upsets my stomach. This is because I have had bowel cancer, luckily benign. However some of my intestine was removed. I like the idea of using natural remedies. When you talk about dry needling, is that acupuncture? I would be very happy to find an alternative to the daily routine of taking medicine.

  3. I had no idea this was a thing and now that I read it, it may explain some of the issues I have been experiencing with my left ankle.  It is always swelling up and increasingly painful and the doctors can’t seem to figure out what the hell is causing it.  

    That is nuts that someone amputated their limb and they still suffered the affliction.  That goes to show it is completely neurological/ psychological.  

    Thank you for some great suggestions.  I will be trying some of them.  I already have a Tens unit that I used to self cure my trigger thumb.  It was the only thing that worked.  Physical therapy just made the situation worse.  That being said, I’ll be trying it in my ankle next.  

    Thanks again! 

    • Hi Ashley. You seem encouraged, and I am so glad! 

      I have to highly recommend 2 things, if you haven’t heard of them (not many have, because they both cure nearly everything but death itself, and we can’t have that!).

      The first is Chlorine Dioxide. We have an article about it, but make sure you follow the links in it to really learn how amazing it is:

      The other thing is black cumin seed oil. We are planning to do an article on it right away. In the mean time, here is a link to an article you are going to love: https://www.epicnaturalhealth….

  4. I have been experiencing a lot of regional pain that is seemingly disproportionate with anything I have ever experienced before. However, I am glad to read that there is treatment for CRPS. And what has surprised me more is that we can even train our brain to reverse chronic CRPS. Thanks for this light at the end of the tunnel.

  5. Hi Larke. Thank you for very important article. I do have a feeling that we still don’t talk enough about CRPS and its really difficult to find reliable information on this in internet. But your post is really helpful, and for sure I will test your advices regarding natural remedies for pain relief. I knew about vitamin C, but temperature therapy is something completely new for me. Hope it will help!
