: I WAS Dx W/RSD ABOUT 8 MONTHS AGO.THE DR. HAVE NEVER MENTIONED THAT IT WAS PERMANENT OR THAT IT WOULD SPREAD.iS THAT HOW IT WORKS?THE RSD WAS A RESULT OF KNEE SUR.(3-17-99)THEY ALSO MISSED A MINISCAL TEAR.I STILL WALK W/CRUTCH.I HAVE BEEN HAVING ALOT OF PAIN IN MY HIP AND NOW TWO PLACES IN MY BACK.I ASSUMED AND THE DR AGREED IT WAS FROM THE CRUTCH.IS IT POSSIBLE ITS PROGRESSION OF RSD?

: hi robyn. a couple of questions...where was the rsd diagnosed? have you had treatments for it? has it gotten better? it's hard to answer some questions, without knowing more. everyone is different. i was dx w/rsd about 6 years ago, in my leg, after surgery on my knee. i had spinal blocks, and pt, and all the wonderful meds. i got it under control, for the most part, but still have occassional flares, that had to be treated for. this last november, was diagnosed with it in my arm, and over the past month have had it
affect both lower legs, and my other arm, in my elbow, also. maybe it would be helpful to find a dr who knows more about rsd, and ask away. i've always heard that if this is caught early enough, can be stopped, but in other cases, does not go away. all i can do is tell you that you're not alone, and myself, and some of the other great people from here, would be more than happy to give you as much advise as we can. just remember, like they say, here...everyone is not the same. please look to see if you can find
someone who maybe better acquanted with this disease, that can give you better answers. take care, and good luck...Tammy
