Hi tinamc and welcome, I have only had rsd for 9 months I have had physical therapy nerve blocks and lots of meds, I couldnt handle the side effects of lyrica so I am now taking neurotin which I havent had any bad side affects with it I have also taken tramadol, which didnt help much now I am taking vicodin for the break through pain I am on a catapress patch ( which is clonidine) it really really helps with the nerve pain and the blood flow in my RSD side (left foot leg arm and hand) I also take restoril to help me sleep at night and elavil for depression, I started to lose lots of wieght 36 pounds in 3 months partly because I cant eat when I hurt real bad and because the Doctor says depression can cause you to lose wieght and if your always in pain your gonna be depressed, any way I still have pain so I went for my psych evaluation today to do the trial for the spinal cord stimulator, I dont know if this is any help to you but have you or your doctors thought about the spinal cord stimulator?
