Re: rsd/ left hand

You need to find RSdDspecialist in your area to decide wether you have it or not.

Re: rsd/ left hand

Sounds like your Dr. may not want to admit he made a mistake. My RSD started with cysts, my ortho refused to operate because he said it would not be worth the nerve damage it would cause. Obivously I don't know your entire situation-so I don't know where your cysts were located-I had three. My RSD exploded when I had my second cortisone shot then wearing a brace and icing. I agree find an RSD specialist. I am doing so much better with Neurotin and Cymbalta-like someone used a fire exstingisher on me! Just have the orginal pain from the tendonitis. Hugs. Second opinions are wonderful things.

Hello kitty,kitty,

Is your radial nerve cut through out or just part way cut. I ask because my Dr. severed my radial nerve at the wrist almost 5 years ago I had 2 surgeries to fix my radial nerve with no luck. Now I have CRPS II throughout the right side of my body foot, leg, upper back & chest, neck, arm, wrist, hand. My pain on a good day is a 7. Tried almost everything except SCS.

Sorry you had this happen to you and hope your pain is not to bad. Don't wait too long to get help or it can go bad very fast once it starts. No ice only heat. Most PM Dr.s do not know what to do so ask a lot of questions. If possible fine a teaching hospital with a Dr. the knows and understands CRPS Type 2. It my take visiting 5-8 different Dr.s before you fine the right one. Don't settle for just anyone because this Dr. could be the one you see every 30 days to manage your pain for the rest of your life.

Good Luck and hope for the best for you.

Hurting 24/7
