Complex Regional Pain Syndrome - Causes, Treatment & Therapies - Gold Canyon AZ

The Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an unceasing pain condition that often affects one of the limbs (that can be arms, legs, hands, or feet), generally after an injury or trauma to that particular limb. Complex regional pain syndrome is believed to be caused due to damage, or malfunctioning of the peripheral and central nervous systems. The central nervous system encompasses the brain and spinal cord; whereas the peripheral nervous system includes the nerve signaling from the brain and the spinal cord to the other parts of the body. The Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is exemplified by prolonged or a chronic pain and mild or dramatic changes in the color of the skin, temperature or even swelling in the affecting area.

Mefloquine for malarial prophylaxis in military personnel

The British Army adopted mefloquine (Lariam) as its preferred drug for chemoprophylaxis against malaria in 1993. Treatment doses of mefloquine had already been reported to cause an acute brain syndrome.1 In 1996, army doctors reported a private soldier who, after six doses of mefloquine prophylaxis, saw the Grim Reaper standing behind the chaplain, heard incoherent voices, and was admitted to a psychiatric hospital2; more reports followed. A health minister explained reassuringly that the increase in reports was “not unexpected.”3 Twenty years later, we are still uncertain how safe mefloquine is, and the media have focused attention on whether the drug should still be used for chemoprophylaxis by British troops, a group with limited autonomy. The UK defence authorities are under renewed pressure to rethink their policy.4
