Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index


My case is not WC; however when I filed for Social Security/Disability, they sent me to a psychiatrist of their choice. It was just part of the process that I had to go through. I would think that your WC issue is the same in that they need you to do this as part of their process.

I don't know how long you have had RSD but I agree with Robbin, the longer you have this disease, the longer it is going to wear on you and the depression is so very hard to live with at times. Yes, we are given medication to help the depression but it's not enough. I resisted going to a psychiatrist for treatment because I really thought that I could handle it by myself. Well after living with this horrible disease that has spread through my entire body and even attacks my internal organs at times for the past 6 yrs., I finally gave in.

I just can't deny it anymore. I started seeing a psychiatrist at the end of last month and I go to my 3rd appt. tomorrow. I did not feel comfortable with the psychiatrist in my pain care specialist's office; therefore I chose to go to someone outside of his office. I am very comfortable with the psychiatrist that I chose and hopefully he will be able to help me to accept what has happened to me once and for all. I think that is the hardest thing for us to do is to accept what has happened however I keep thinking that I am going to get out of my wheelchair; but I'm not.

I've heard that WC can be complicated at times. If I were you, I would just do as they ask but remember that you can always ask them "Why do you need to do this procedure".

Good Luck & God Bless,
