: HI, MY NAME IS BROOKE. I HAVE HAD RSD FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS. I'VE HAD 11 SPINAL BLOCKS AND A SPINAL CORD STIMULATOR(WHICH LATER HAD TO BE REMOVED). I AM CURRENTLY ON 20 MG. OF METHADONE EVERY 8 HRS. THIS MED DOES TAKE THE EDGE OFF! IF NONE OF YOU HAVE TRIED IT....PLEASE DO! I DO NOT FEEL DRUGGED OR OUT OF IT. ALSO, TWO WEEKS AFTER HAVING MY SCS REMOVED I BECAME PREGNANT. GOD MUST HAVE KNOWN WHAT TO DO TO KEEP ME GOING.....A BABY! AFTER BEING ASSURED FROM MULTIPLE DRS THAT RSD NOR THE METHADONE WOULD AFFECT THE BABY, I BRACED MYSELF FOR THE HARDEST 9 MONTHS OF MY LIFE. GUESS WHAT? I MADE IT! I HAVE JUST GIVEN BIRTH TO MY THIRD CHILD....A BOY! YES, THIS PAIN CONSUMES MY EVERY WAKING(AND SLEEPING)LOL THOUGHT. BUT I PRAY FOR US ALL TO ONE DAY HAVE A CURE. UNTIL THEN LETS CONTINUE TO EDUCATE OTHERS AND BE THERE FOR EACH OTHER. LOVE TO ALL,KEEP THE FAITH, EVEN WHEN IT FEELS LIKE NO ONE UNDERSTANDS. -BROOKE
