... one for her pain in her thigh. Lately the RSD has spread to her lower back. She is in so much pain the Hydrocodone is not helping her at night. Her dr prescribed Neuroutin same time he prescribed the Hydrocodone. He said don't get the neuroutin filled unless I had to. ... (23 replies)
... I can tell you I have been on neurontin for 9 months, along with skelaxin, percocet, antidepressents, topomax, etc. One bad thing about neurontin for me was I gained 25 pounds and you have a great tendency to retain fluid. It worked for awhile, but as my rsd progressed, neurontin no longer helps me. The doctor took me off it, I lost 20 pounds really quick and most of it was... (23 replies)
... Hello. The dr took my daughter off the Neurontin. From what she was saying it was not helping her at all. She had her 2nd nerve block done & it seemed to only help for her back pain she was having. She was on 100 mg of the neurontin. Come to find out her aunt was having the same symptoms as her & she went to her regular dr. The dr told her she had sciatica. She... (23 replies)

... Hello! I'm sorry to hear that your daughter is having such a hard time. RSD is such a hard disease to control! I have RSD in my left wrist and arm. I take Lortab 10mg for pain, and it helps a little, sometimes. I take 2400 mg of Neurontin a day. I have been on Neurontin for nearly a year now. It does help with the burning sensations that radiate through my arm sometimes.... (23 replies)
... Yes, it is the same person. Do a search of his full name Dr. Gabor Racz and Curriculum Vitae and the second or third listing is his CV which says he was initially educated in England - graduated medical school in 1962 - and then Syracuse and then moved to New York and then Texas where he was Chair of the Pain Anesthesiology area. Has written or co-written over 100 papers on... (23 replies)
... Re: Neurontin My daughter started with RSD when she was 14, in her lower right leg caused, by surgery in the area many years before.. Neorontin, which I know helps many, many RSD sufferers, turned her into an immediate Zombie and she had to be taken off of it immediately. She finally had a radiofrequency rhizotomy, that after 2 1/2 years of pain, left her pain free for 4... (23 replies)

... I do know that he was from my area and started out here in Syracuse NY. Did you find out anything bout that??? (23 replies)
... Just looked up a couple of sites Amber and it is stated that he began working in the field of Pain Management in the 60's - since he would have had to be near 30 to specialize, he is probably 72 now and I understand has seen it all. I will be checking further into some of the things he has written. Seems he appears as expert witness for a lot of lawyers. One site was... (23 replies)
... i dont think he is that old, but i could be wrong, the web page that i talk to him on shows a pic of a younger man maybe 40s. But i konw that what my doc said about him also that hes the experts expert to go to.. maybe its his dad??? Let me know what you find out.. you got me intrested now... ;) :angel: Amber (23 replies)
... Amber could you tell me if DR. Racz in quite elderly - because my doctor here went to a conference and came back with a paper by a doctor with this name and immediately put me on Clonmazepam. He said he was the experts expert as far as he was concerned and that he was still handling patients at 72. I will be check for more information on the web but just wonder if he was the...

... Hi Everyone, Thanks for the prayers. So far the neurotin is working okay, I really don't know what it is supposed to do. My daughter says her thigh is just numb now, but her back still hurts. Is it supposed to make her thigh numb? So, we are just going day by day. Thanks again for the prayers, Yolanda (23 replies)
... It sounds like RSD to me. Currently, my RSD is in both my legs all the way from my feet to my hips and I am confined to a wheel chair. The RSD is also in a state of spreading in both my arms. But this is simply a state of trying to basically detox my RSD from my body to put it into remission. I don't know what city in Texas you are in, but the dr I am currently seeing is... (23 replies)
... Yolanda.. dont worry about changing docs or even seeing another one for a second opinion. I have been through 3 docs since being diagnosed with RSd and there are many of us that have seen more then tht. I dont really think that one of us stayed with the first doc. I had to find a doc out of my area adn i drive an hour and 1/2 to see him and also have my surgerys there. ... (23 replies)
... Thanks Amber: If this next nerve block doesn't work then we will be looking for more options from other dr's. It's just hard to know if this time a dr is going to be able to help. I hate switching dr's, but if this is what we have to do to get our daughter better then we'll do anything. Thanks, Yolanda (23 replies)
... Yolanda, I live in Upstate NY nad my doc has runn out of options that he can think of to help me , so he called a BIG doc in TX that specializes in RSD and has done lots with it. His name is Dr. Gabor Racz in Lubbock TX. He is highly reconized and you can search his name on the net for more info, but he has been in on my care on my RSD for about a year now and hes...

... Amanda, Thanks for your prayers. I feel so helpless. I wish I could take this pain away from my daughter. She is due to have another nerve block next Friday. If this time it doesn't work then I don't know what we'll do next. The meds really don't help her at all. But, what can I do. Like I said before she cannot put any pressure on her leg, if she does she gets a... (23 replies)
... I haven't posted on here before, but I have found myself lurking around this forum at 3 am when I can't sleep. When I found your post I felt compelled to respond. I am a 16 year old girl with RSD. It originally started in my left foot after a fracture when I was 9 years old. I was put on neurontin and elevil originally, but was non-functional on both of the meds. I... (23 replies)
... Hello Yolanda - In addition to Neurtonin I am on Clonmazepem which is also a seizure type medicine but stronger than Neurontin so you do not have to take as much. I could not handle more than 900 Neurontin a day as it upset my sleep. If she is not sensitive to cool water, try taking her to a pool and have them put her in with the hydrolic chair using a noodle between her... (23 replies)
... Amber, The nerve block maybe lasted about a week. I do admit the pain is not as bad as it use to be, but it is still there. Now her back is starting to hurt. We did do the bath soaks when her thigh hurt her so bad. I should try it on her back when her pain is so unbearable. She is on crutches, she's been on them for about 2 months. All this is happening on her left... (23 replies)
