Hello to all,
I am new here and amazed at all the RSD post. I try to make my way to any group or site that has people with RSD/CRPS on them. So little is known about RSD (although it has been around since the Civil War) people are out there being told they are crazy, there is no such thing, and being shunned by their friends, family, and even doctors.
There are millions of people that suffer with RSD/CRPS, you are not alone. My daughter has had RSD since she was 8 and I also have this monster (for 4yrs). No, I don't think it's heredity more like just our luck. I have been listing to people for the last 11yrs and still do not everything about RSD. I do know there are doctors that think they know everything about RSD. There are people out there that promise a "cure" or treatments that make the RSD worse not better. I do know that RSD does not attack people in the same way. Most important, a positive outlook, and lots of laughing helps a ton when dealing with RSD.
I hope each of you are having less pain days and find many things to smile about.
