Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) board

Quote from bluegilllady:
undefined HI I am new to these boards , so I am saying Happy New Year to all of you out there who have RSD like I do. I have had it for 5 yrs. and am still not used to having it ! ! It drives me Crazy most days as the Pain is Horrible as I'm sure most of you already know. I too am looking for people to talk , chat or E- mail with who are going thru the same things I am. My name is Terri , I am 41 and live in Michigan , USA. So if anyone out there would like to talk sometime let me know as I am stuck at home most of the time as I am on crutches due to the RSD and don't get out much at all except to go to the Dr.'s. Thank's for listening and I hope to hear from some of you real soon ! ! Happy Holidays :bouncing:

Hope you are feeling a bit better. I am Laura. Have had CRPS for 4 years from a car accident - details not important, but I was on crutches too. Because I had been used to going to a water acquasize class for my arthritis, I forced (literally) myself to go back and was put in and out of the pool by hydrolic chair and gradually got my full movement back in deep water with flotation belt on, and over the past three years have even built up some muscle in legs and buttock. Still have pain but even that has been reduced. Am on Elavil, Clonazepam, Gabapentin and Celebrex. Would probably have a knee replacement if I had not got the RSD from the accident and would probably be permanently in a wheelchair if it were not for the pool. Inactivity is not good for someone with RSD and I I was beginning to feel like I was wrapped in cellophane before I got back to the water. I really hope you will give the pool a try. Get a Kinesiologist to work with you at first as they know body mechanics. It takes a lot of effort at first. I would go to bed for a snooze each time for the first month or so as just getting dress and doing the slow routine made me tired but then it started to get easier. Now I can do a full workout and go play bridge for 4 hours. One should go at least 10 times before they decide if it works for them :wave: . Best of luck. Take care. Laura
