Cool RSD into remission?


I have had RSD in the left knee/leg since August 2001. After I started using Duragesic in September 2002, I noticed huge improvements. Not only does Duragesic control my severe chronic pain, it also controls the other symptoms of RSD, such as swelling, redness, hypersensitivity to touch, temperature...

Does this mean my RSD is in remission? My doctor told me he believes my RSD is NOT in remission because I still feel pain, even though this pain is mild to moderate.

What are your experiences with RSD remission? How can someone tell if their RSD has gone in remission?

Hi SFAngel, Welcome to the Board

Sorry about your knee, but glad to hear it's feeling better. I hope it continues to improve.

From reading the chatter on here, I might have experienced the closest thing to remission as anyone posting, so I'll take a stab at an answer.

I was totally pain free. No symptoms, nothing.

This pain free period did only last 6 months, but that was nice. I believed I was cured during that time.

For me it happened right after getting a B12 shot, but that's neither here nor there.

Hope this info helps, and welcome again .

rice, how long had you had rsd when your remission started? did you get ther with a gradual reduction in symptoms, or did everything just disappear?

Hi, everybody

Riceneuroni, it is interesting that your remission started just after you received a shot of vitamin B12. I will talk with my doctor about getting one of these, or do I need several?

Because the vitamin B12 shot put your RSD in remission,
I wonder if a deficiency in vitamin B12 plays a role in the RSD developing and not going away.

B12 deficiency, as well as a deficiency of any one of a long list of other nutrients can have neurological symptoms.

If B12 helps, then your search for a cure should focus on nutrient deficiency as a cause for the neuropathy.

If B12 does not help, that does not mean a nutrient deficiency is not the cause of the neuropathy.
