Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Sorry that all of this is taking so long for you to get answers. I developed RSD after foot surgery and had a huge flare-up after a second foot surgery. My surgeon kept telling me that the symptoms I was having were normal and to wait and see how I was feeling in a few more weeks. During the first episode, I had the burning experience constantly and sweating (lower leg and foot only) at night. The second time, it seemed like my foot was in a pail of ice and it was constantly cramped. Lots of pain. I had the extreme sensitivity both times and several other symptoms.

My family doctor prescribed the Lidocaine 5% patch wich settled down some of the irritation and swelling. She also prescribed Neurontin 300mg. I take 2 at bedtime and 1 in the morning. This helps tremendously with the cramps. I was referred to a Pain Management Center and had 3 Lumbar Epidural Sympathetic Nerve Blocks. These blocks were very successful. My sysmptoms and pain have been reduced greatly. I am currently attending physical therapy 3 times a week for whirlpool, massage, range of motion and balance. After that, I intend to investigate the water therapy.

Best of luck to you. I hope you find the help you need.
