Updated: 03/19/2007 - Ellen Furness was once a vibrant and active woman, but one day, all of that changed. She went to the hospital with an intense pain in her side, it was attributed to a ruptured Ovarian Cyst, but once it was removed, the pain continued. For years doctors didn't know why she continued to be in extreme pain, but it changed her life. She could no longer do the things she once did, for fear of getting another pain attack. After years of wondering, she found out that she suffered from Complex regional pain syndrome. There is no cure.
