If you go into remission early into having RSD, 3 months, would you have pain do to the damage of atrophy or contracture and how would one tell the difference? The vascular aspect of my RSD seems to be better where it started in the wrist and hand. I have very little shine, the veins are filling again,
the pain is very manageable with neurontin and topamax.
The wrist, and fingers are still stiff and I have either contracture of the joints or bony changes. My shoulder had been painful for about two weeks before the possible remission and over night it frooze up, which is what my wrist and hand did. However my shoulder had the light touch, and cold sensitivity, but never turned purple, or white. So I don't if I am in remission and this is residule problems, or it the RSD is out of my wrist and hand and moved to the shoulder. I am sorry every time I get on here I need help. I have only had this since June and I am so confused! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gif
Thank you, God bless.
