Like a few others on here, my husband has been DX with RSD in 99.He's retired USArmy/24yrs & took on as a hobbie driving 18 wheeler.(yes, he's one of those nasty truck drivers!!!LOL) He got injured OTJ 5/20/99 & has been to 8 dr's.4 Workers Comp & ortho (under care now),nerve.The injury is to the r-foot.It's gone from broken foot/tendenicis/circulatory/blood clot/
& finally RSD.Workers Compensation are the ones that are causing problems for him due to they are saying
"sprained ankle"!!!!The foot turns a pretty shade of
blue/swells/CONSTANT pain/burning/stabbing needles & is traveling up the leg.He's gone thru 5-6 nerve blocks with no relief & now they are talking about some
type of implant in the lower back.Can not drive at all/
does not leave the house unless our daughter or myself
take him.Fighting depression very bad.A VietNam vet &
does not like drugs so has been really trying to handle
the pain/discomfort on his own but had to give in & go on Vicodin.I would really love to communicate with some
one who also has this RSD so that maybe I could learn of some ways that I could maybe help him.I hate seeing
him in this much pain/discomfort & not knowing what I can do to help him.Please email me at rtunney@hhs.net with any suggestions or help.Am getting really desperate.I agree that there is to little known about this RSD & we need to try & help each other.Do hope to hear from someone SOON. Today is 2-10-2000. Thank YOu
