REVISED is CRPS part of total loss of use?
#1
I posted a few minutes ago and realized I wrote the wrong ??? in the thread subject. I meant to ask if CRPS is taken into consideration when getting a rating for loss of use in NY? If CRPS is "chronic", there is no cure, I have been treating with a PM Dr. without success:

1. Is it my choice to stop (injections in front of neck are very scary & not working)?

2. Is it part of the final PPD determination?

I am not @ MMI yet, however, as soon as I stop PM treating, I'm sure I will be. My surgeon has nothing left to offer surgically.

(Bilateral Carpal tunnel surgery, basal joint(s) replaced, IP fusion(s), left DeQuarvain's release, MCP fusion & hardware removal, right trigger thumb and now CRPS right hand, wrist, arm.)

thanks!!

a Diagnosis like CRPS is not used in ratings.
it's all based on impaired parts of the body.
each impaired area is given a rating regardless of diagnosis.

yes, treatment decisions remain with the patient.
