ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Pelvic pain for 9 years, endometriosis not the problem. Nerve pain. Multiple injections external and internal on pelvic floor, ovary removal, nerve stimulator in pelvic area, nerve blocks. Constant sometimes excruciating pain in lower left pelvic area. None of the treatments have helped. After rupturing her ankle ligament, diagnosed with Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome....had stimulator removed and a spinal stimulator implanted. On so many heavy duty medications and the stimulator nothing helps to alleviate the pain anywhere. Now her foot is red and hot all the time and it looks like she is wearing a red sock most of the time. She has to have ice on it almost constantly to keep the pain level at a level that she can deal with. Working on stim programs to help...not there yet. She is only 36 years old, too young for this to be happening. She was an assistant general manager at a restaurant and is now house bound for the most part and can only drive very short distances. We feel that CRPS is the "diagnosis" for the pelvic pain too. She has been to about 14 different doctors in different expertise areas. Would love to get her in touch with Mayo clinic doctors...this has effected them financially, not to mention emotionally.
