: I was diagnosed with stage 3 RSD in 12-99,. only 15 months after my original injury. Also, I have it in all 4 extremities, with the original site being the most painful. I am wondering, is this rapid spreading
: or just about on course? I did not have any treatment
: until I had a positive bone scan- 9 months after my
: wrist sprain. I am interested to know what the RSD
: community has to say. Ever known anyone like me?
: be painfree if you can!
My husband has RSD. It sounds like it was diagnosed late in the stages for you. Stage 1 is 3 - 6 months. Stage 2 is 6 - 9 months. And stage 3 is any period after that.
My husband was diagnosed 3 months after he had surgery on his foot. It has now been 5 months for him. He has not gotten any relieve from meds and it seems
to be spreading up his leg and to the other foot. From what I have read and researched, RSD is more or less misdiagnosed by doctors in the early stages. You obviously
had it earlier than diagnosed. Are you getting any relief from meds. The biggest problem with RSD is that if not diagnosed in the early stages it can spread and worsen.
