I get so many people asking me what CRPS is, as well as what HBOT is. Instead of me requesting to google it (*It’s not very easy to explain-but not difficult to understand*) I figured I’d knock 2 birds with one stone! 😀
This post has amazing information regarding HBOT & CRPS/RSD!
After reading this,you should understand why I’ve made it my mission to raise the money to receive HBOT, by hosting Fundraisers, an auction at the end of the month, as well as my donations website: http://www.gofundme.com/LRTR2013

**Easing the Symptoms of RSD with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy**
Doctor Allan Spiegel
Friday, October 7, 2011
*Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic pain disorder that currently has no cure. In addition to severe pain, those with the neurological disorder can experience abnormal sweating, swelling in tissues, discoloration of skin, muscle atrophy and sensitivity to light and touch. The most common method for helping RSD patients manage the pain is through medication. The cycle of pain management offers some sufferers relief, while others struggle to find a way to cope with the daily effects of living with pain.*!
**As you can see,there are many different looks to CRPS. Sometimes if feels like I’m on fire,other times it feels like frost bite! As you can see, the CRPS is in all 4 limbs. I also have Bone Marrow Edema in my right foot**
*Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has offered many RSD sufferers an alternative or supplement to their current medicated pain management regiments. I have been a practicing neurologist for over 20 years and discovered HBOT when I was researching therapies to help a family member who had suffered a stroke. I saw the benefits HBOT can provide firsthand and am passionate about the healing potential of this type of therapy. We have been providing HBOT to RSD patients in our Palm Harbor, FL clinic for the past 8 years. Some patients notice an easing of symptoms within just a few sessions of HBOT.
What Does HBOT Offer the RSD Patient?
It can offer a pain reduction cycle that does not require narcotics or needles. It is safe, cost-effective and painless. During HBOT sessions, patients breathe 100% oxygen at a higher than normal air pressure. This increased level of oxygen circulates through the bloodstream and helps decrease swelling and encourages healing. Patients experience an increase in muscle tone and notice that they are able to sleep more restfully, feel less depressed, think more clearly and are able to establish more regular routines in their daily lives. *

For those of you who read through this post, thank you. I truly appreciate it.
My urgency to raise money to receive HBOT treatments is extremely high. My CRPS is spreading very quickly, and I just found out that my right foot has bone marrow edema in it.
