Before my wrist surgery, I had a chat with the anesthesiologist. I thought what he said was really clever. He said that when the brain goes haywire and won’t turn off, it’s a seizure. That’s basically the same as what is happening to the nerves in my ankle, so the way he thinks of CRPS is that my ankle is having a seizure. Makes those anti-convulsant medications I’m taking make a lot more sense!
