Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Yes, unfortunately RSD/CRPS can get worse with age (or it may spread) but that does not necessarily mean it will. There are cases of "cures" or "remission".

There are many ways to treat RSD...all depending on the individual. Medicines, pain blocks, spinal stimulators, etc are just some of the ways. You definitely want to see another doctor...a pain specialist if one's available. It may be that your RSD can be treated with medication alone. However, you do not want to let it continue to go untreated...that can definitely cause future problems. Ask your mom or dad to take you to see a pain specialist....they are trained to understand your pain. You may also want to look into a pain clinic that has a psychologist on the premises. Yes, RSD is very hard to understand for people who don't have it, and those of us that do tend to feel like we're crazy or it's "all in our head". It helps to know that there are people out there that understand...and they can help your family understand as well.

Hope that helps.
