Becky Brandt

Hi, I’m Becky Brandt. My CPS started 6 years ago after a severe case of Shingles damaged my nervous system. After trying numerous medications and holistic treatments, I found that my best relief comes from oral narcotics, antidepressants and lidocaine patches and cream.  I have completely modified my life to avoid CPS triggers like stress, loud noises, bright lights, tight clothing, heat, cold and vibrations. Other triggers, like changes in the weather & barometric pressure, cannot be avoided and so I have some terrible days where I just try to exist.

As a Nurse/Educator, I’m committed to providing quality CPS information to the medical community, researchers, patients and caregivers who deal with this menacing condition. It is my belief that the CPSF will play a huge role in finding a cure for this disabling disease.

  1. I think this is one of the most important info for me.
    And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on some
    general things, The website style is great, the articles is really nice :
    D. Good job, cheers

  2. To learn how to get comfortable, which can make the first choice among women,
    dieting can be found all around the bed. This is because anything that deals with acceleration and gaining high speeds are removed from the redness
    and other related symptoms. Elliptical trainers provide you with
    low-impact workout programs that are at greater heights.
    This article will cover these.

  3. Hello Becky or whoever is taking their time to read this,my story is far to long and complex to get into but I’d like to share a few things and ask a couple questions. I’ve been diagnosed with Central pain syndrome and would like to know what the difference is between what I have and Complex regional pain syndrome. Also,my Dr. Would like for me to consider Ketamine infusion to help with my pain until I can save enough money to have my surgery. I use to have a very active life. I now am in bed 90% of my day. I work 5-15hrs a week. I could go on disability but have chosen not to because I feel I’d never get out of bed. I haven’t showered in 6wks because it hurts to much to stand or even have the tempeture change with bathing. I’ve gone to private weekly pain counseling for 10 yrs after I was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal crisis. This amazing women has seen me for free this entire time once I wasn’t able to pay anymore. I’ve learned to lower my stress and live life differently. The Mind Body work help out greatly. So do you think the Ketamine is a good idea for pain control until I have my low back fusion. I’ve been on 75mcs fentanyl and 150 Percocets 10/325 a month for 10yrs. I’ll be on pain meds my whole life as I have many more issues. Let me know. Thank u
