Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

I broke my arm (in two places) on Dec 13th....had the cast taken off at 5 1/2 weeks. The doc I was seeing at the time recommended THEIR PT (big surprise). 1st session was uneventful...second session they put me w/an assistant who hung my wrist over the side of a table and started pushing claiming (basically) no pain no gain. During the time seeing this practice, while I complained about the nerve pain and swelling they could see...nothing was ever mentioned about RSD. we saw a huge facility for orhopedics near my house and decided to give it a try....the doc immed said "Possible RSD" and prescribed meds and physical therapy. I've seen my PT 3 times...she's degreed,is a PT and OT. First she warms me up and then masage and then works with my hand slowly. After all that she gives me exercises to do w/ diff equipment.

I cannot say I feel that there is any improvement yet....and have noticed numbness in the fingers of my other arm. If I lay on my right side my left arm goes to sleep.

I am right handed and losing my abilities w/that hand more than stinks.

My doc has me on neurontin, celebrex and vitamin c. Would like to hear from other sufferers and also any natural remedies out there
