Hi Heather, my son has RSD and diaganosed in May of 1999. He has slight discoloration in his knee and swelling , but not actual dark bruising. We are also really new and learning, and there are alot of great persons on the message board to help. LeeAnn is a sweetheart and has helped us alot since we came on. My son is 21 and trying to go back to college. WE are getting a disability form done for school,so the teachers will understand how much pain he has,why he has to get up and leave,etc. Also, my health plan will pay for a specialist outside of it,if they cannot provide the help needed for him. Check on this with yours. It took several doctors for us before we found some who knew RSD. Each case is different. Contact me at my E-mail address and we can keep in touch and I'll pass on anything I can to you and others ,on the message board, when I can. Take care, this is not an easy road to travel. You have many friends out there ,young and old with this, we all care!! C,ya, Connie: I'M SORT OF NEW TO THIS RSD THING. I WAS ONLY "OFFICIALLY" DIAGNOSED ABOUT A MONTH OR TWO AGO. ANYWAY AS YOU ALL KNOW IT HAS BEEN A HARD AND IRRITATING ROAD TO GET THE DOCTOR TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PAIN IS SERIOUS. WE DON'T SEEM TO HAVE MANY SPECIALISTS IN OUR AREA THAT DEAL WITH RSD. OH, WELL, MY REAL QUESTION IS ABOUT BRUISING. DOES ANYONE ELSE GET BLACK AND BLUE MARKS IN THE AFFECTED AREA? I READ SOMEWHERE THAT BRUISING CAN BE ANOTHER SYMPTOM, BUT I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM ANYONE ELSE THAT ACTUALLY HAD THIS HAPPEN. I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE FROM THE MEDS I'M ON. ALL OF MY DOCTORS SEEM TO THINK I'M A FREAK MEDICAL CASE. IF THEY ONLY KNEW HOW MUCH OF THE PAIN I DON'T TELL THEM ABOUT. AND ALL BECAUSE I THINK THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME. ENOUGH GRUMBLING! I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY RESPONSES TO THIS QUESTION.

: HEATHER
