Hi all -
I have RSD in my left hand. Thank goodness I have gone without a flare-up for 10 months. I do however have permanent dystonia of the hand & wrist. Just picture Freddy Kruger's switchblade fingers in "Nightmare on Elm Street". I have no movement of my wrist, hand or fingers.
My question is...Why does it feel painful when I try to jog or do any aerobic exercise that involves jumping or moving faster than walking? I modify the moves so that my left arm stays as still as possible by my body but I still feel pain. Swelling (edema) I can understand & that occurs even when walking.
Thanks in advance for your help!
