Definition

chronic regional pain syndrome includes causalgia and sets up allopathic neuropathic pain with disuse habit; usual opiate not as helpful as methadone and gabapentin and others, including low dose tricyclics; implies nerve trunk injury and delayed pain resolution; poorly understood but reated to many disabilities from extremity or limb girdle disorders or injuries;
