Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Hi, I am a 20 year old female and I have had RSD for about 3 years now. I have been having fevers, swollen lymphnodes, body aches, night chills and sweats and severe throat infections for over a year staight. I had a tonsillectomy this last March and the doctors said I was sick due to my tonsils; however, now there out and I am still sick. I have been on every kind of oral antibiotic and I still have this illness. I literally am sick all the time. I haven't gotten better yet - its been over a year. In additon, the last few months I have been having horrible chest pains, and just recently shortness of breath. My doctor did cat scans and blood work - ANA and CBC - but it all came back normal he said except for large lymph nodes. If I have an infection wouldn't my white blood cell count be up? I mean you can see little pockets of puss in the back of my throat and it bleeds, and I have horrible post nasal drip with huge, hard, mucus I cough up (sorry, I know it sounds gross). I also recently had a culture of my throat and it contained no bacteria so my ENT said there wasn't anything else he could do.

I know that RSD can lower your immune system, but what kind of treatments are out there for it. I mean besides taking vitamins and eating health foods...

I am sorry this is so long, but I really, really need help. I don't know what to do, and it makes my pain sooo much worse when I am really sick. I am so sick that I can't get out of bed for very long most of the week, and I have to go to the ER a lot, and I have fevers every single day. I was just wondering if anyone knows anything that I can do; if I need to go to an immunologist or if any of you have heard of drugs of maybe Immunoglobuling injections for an immune compromised rsd patient?

Thank you for all of your time; I really, really appreciate it!
