Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Hi everyone I am new to this board but not really that new to RSD. I got it after a carpal tunnel and ganglion cyst removal in my right hand and I am right handed. I Have been through 3 blocks all which did not do much more than make my neck stiff and hurt like hell. I am now just seeing a pain doc and shrink in the DEs moines area. The shrink I have seen twice with very little personal info exchanged and already he is giving into the case managers pressure to put me at MMI after only two sessions. My pain doc is also ready to do the same after only two months of seeing him. This guy was highly recomended by my attorney and several others including lawyers and doctors. I was told he was the best and hates insurance companies so he would be my best bet. From the first day I met him he has accused me of faking it behind my back of course in the notes given to the work comp robocase manager. He tells me that I am the one who has to make myself better, it's all in your head..blah,blah,blah. My attorney still thnks I should stick with him but I really don't know what to think. He gives me plenty of pain meds, I just don't know if I trust him. They are all trying to get me to go back to work as a furnace installer. There is no way that this is even possible physically. I really don't think at this point that any work is going to be an option. My days are so unpredictable with the pain and emotions. What do I have to do to make these people understand what this is like. Any expert could take one look at my wrist and see that I am not in good shape. I am really concerned because they are talking about putting me at MMI on Nov 2 which means no more TTD checks, WHat in the hell am I suppose to do then? Sorry you got RSD but time to suck it up and go do a job that they know I can't do? IT makes no sense at all. You would think that they would understand considering they all admit I will never get better and am in a lot of pain but they just don't seem to care. They are also telling me that I should take oxycontin and lortab and all of these other drugs and go hang sheet metal with RSD in my wrist! And they are telling me to drive under the influence which should be a crime in itself. where do these people get off showing blatant disregard for my well being and for the law?
