Dr. Norman Doidge describes a cure for CRPS in his 2015 book:

The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity

Chapter 1: Physician Hurt, Then Heal Thyself: Michael Moskowitz Discovers That Chronic Pain Can Be Unlearned.

This type of chronic pain is caused by a rewiring of the brain’s body map, often by an excruciatingly painful trauma event, making it feel excruciating pain in a part of the body long after the injury has healed. Since the pain is actually being generated in the brain itself in the brain’s map of the body, and the brain is neuroplastic, the brain can be persuaded to unwire itself so it no longer feels this excruciating pain. The process takes 4 months.

(Also please note the dangers of mixing Methadone and Benzodiazepines. There’s a reaction between the two medications which is not well understood, which can cause a patient to pass out. Methadone is often prescribed as a pain medication, while Benzodiazepines are an anti-anxiety medication.)

(Would also be nice to develop a monitoring device a patient could wear that would alert a partner if the patient stops breathing.)
