Pacing is important in controlling the symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome.

My suffering today brings home to me the importance of pacing and not overdoing things. I now recognize warning signs but don't always pay attention. For me the warning that I must stop is a general agitation and all over burning as if I have a fever. Twice lately I've ignored the signs and ended up with flare ups in my shoulder driven left side and back driven right side. I realise the right thing to do would have been to stop, breathe out twice as long as in, take an epson salts bath, apply chilli cream and a heat pack and of course mirror exercises. The frustrating thing is that I just want to get on with life and put fun in there. As I've said before it's a fine line between enough and too much/ pay for it later.
