Hi Lisa. Find a good Pain Management doc as soon as you can. They can get you started on some pain meds. Hopefully, the nerve block will help you. I also have RSD in my right foot and calf. The nerve blocks I had hurt, but they did really help with the pain so it was worth a few minutes of discomfort for a couple weeks of relief for me. If you are really sensitive to the touch, one thing that did help me was the the lidocaine patch. You can wear it for only 12 hours a day I think. I haven't used them in quite a while. Also get into physical therapy. This also really helped. It loosened everything up, so I could walk without crutches. I still have a very noticeable limp, but I can at least walk on my own. A warm pool to walk in really helps. With the heat, a little bit cooler water felt better. I hope this helps. Let us know how you are doing. Even if you just need to vent.
