My name is cathy and i have only had RSD for four months. I was hit in the left ankle with a flat cart at work on the 5th of jan. I almost imedently started to have the worst buring pain i have ever felt. It was so unbareable that i could not even touch it for days, no ice nothing i could not get my shoe back on because it swelled so bad.I went to the doctors the next day and he said only an ankle contusion and stay off it for a couple days. It got worse the next day it started to turn purple and black at times. It was so cold to touch but it felt like it was burning,it sweats so bad that i dont know what to do with it and it is still cold to touch it. It feels like it is so cold it could be frost bitten. I went to my doctor the next day and they said only an ankle sprian. I went home and put heat on that burning foot because they said to. It hurt so bad that i could only do it for 2 to 3 min, at a time. Finally after two more weeks when i went back my doctor said that he thought RSD . I went to a neurologist and he said Classic RSD and started me on Neurontin. I take darveset for the pain with the neurontin. I go tomarrow the 3rd of april so they can put a catheter in my back and inject nerve block medicines for four days. They are going to do intense physical therapy for the four days and hopefully i will be able to walk after that. I would love to help any one that wants to email me.I need some friends to talk to so please contact me.
