Crps

Sooo I rolled my ankle today at school and I have a performance
in drama

Oh no!! How do you feel? Will you be able to perform?

Oh gosh! Take it easy, elevate, ice (if you can), and rest tonight. I hope it won't give you too much problem in drama class. Hugs!! 🙂💕🙏🌼

I wouldn't put ice on it because you have crps! Thats one thing I learned the hard way. Ice can cause nerve damage with crps. So use heat and elevate it do what ever you know works best for you.

I wasn't sure about the ice, that's why I said "if." I kept thinking someone with CRPS mentioned ice being bad but couldn't remember. Thanks for clarifying that Jenna!

I think we're all different - ice, SUPER cold, is the only thing that helps 1 of my wrists- heat sends me over the EDGE!!! But my other wrist doesn't mind ice but seems to relax more with heat...

Gardener. If you are using ice I suggest being very careful. It really isn't the best best it causes the nerves to basically shrivel up and die. So I wouldn't keep the icr on too long
