Hey Jon,

I do therapy for my hand / arm ( therapy for my leg at home) and its been very hard but I'm still pushing through. Having the scs trial helps but yesterday (Friday) my therapist touched me - she just grabed my arm and of course it sent a hole mess of extra pain through me. Not too happy about that. And I cried for a while. My Dr. said that you are only suppose to do a motion for as long as you can stand it and not to over do it even though you do need to strench and work your limbs.

I was at a Rehab hospital earlier this year (got worse) and they wanted to do the contast baths (cold and hot water) to desensitize and my Dr. wasn't too happy when he heard that. I heard cold is really bad for RSD (restricts blood flow) so it would make sence that the cold water would be bad like ice, weather, ect. Just a thought.
