: : HI! MY NAME IS ARCHIE
: : I TO HAVE RSD FOR ALL MOST TWO YEARS. I
DEVELOP AFTER
: : HAVING CARPAL TUNNEL SURGERY. I HAVE HAD
STELLATE GANGLION BLOCKS AND NOW UNDER GOING
ACUPUNCTURE AND PHYSICAL THERAPY. THE ACUPUNCTURE
REALY HELPING A LOT
: : AFTER FIGHTING WITH WORKERS COMPENSATION AND
MY BOSS FOR SO MENEY MONTHS. SO ANY INFORMATION
YOU MAY HAVE WOULD BE WELCOME.

: Hi Archie...I have had RSD for 3 years after
having carpal tunnel surgery. Had ganglion
blocks and meds but my WC refuses to pay for
physical therapy & acupuncure. I live in Texas
and it has the worst WC laws in the US. It all
depends on what state you live in. You should be
able to get an attorney easily if you haven't
accepted the MMI from WC. Wish you the best.
: : THANK YOU
: : ARCHIE

I also have RSD for what will be 6 yrs in 12/99 from a car accident. Have had stellate ganglion blocks, physical therapy, 3 yrs chiropractic, etc. A million doctors later and a bone scan I am now told there is nothing that can be done and that I will need to try the blocks again and be seen by a pain clinic and medicated for life. That a sympathectomy is not an option as it would not benefit me enough to justify it, nor would it cure the problem or pain I have all over my body. You deal with it the best you can, make the most of your situation, and leave the rest to God as it's not in your hands anyway. I wish all with this dreaded infliction the very best and get it before it gets you. Do all you can do, everyday, to brighten up your life. I wish all the best and hope the blocks are successful for you both. Love, Cathy
