Hi and welcome . As Deanne said, you are definitely not alone. We have a great little support group here and many people say how coming here has helped them to at the very least, not feel so alone with this. Also, as Deanne said, the fact that you were diagnosed relatively early is a good thing for you. They say the earlier you are diagnosed, the better your chances for remission.
I've had RSD for at least 24 years...got it when I was about 15. I've had a pain pump for the past 9 years which has helped me a lot. As Deanne said, it's good you have a good PM doc. Have you spoken to him/her about your treatment options?
Well, it's nice to meet you and I hope you like it here as much as we do.
