I've had lingering stiffness and pain from a shoulder surgery 9 months ago, with burning in my armpit and down the back of my arm particularly when I straighten my elbow. I can't walk for more than 20 minutes because my arm and hand swell up and become even more painful. Compared to many of the symptoms I've read, my problem is VERY mild, but I'm afraid it could get worse. My ortho doc says only that a nerve is stretched and there is nothing to do but wait, but does is sound like it might be a mild case of RSD? If so, what do I do next?
