Since September 14, 2002, I have been using Duragesic 50 mcg for severe chronic pain caused by RSD.

I am very happy with Duragesic because not only this medication controls the severe chronic pain of RSD, it also controls the other symptoms of RSD. For example, the skin redness and hypersensitivity to touch are completely gone. The RSD pain is usually between 2 to 3 on a scale of 0 to 10.

I would like to know why a pain medication such as Duragesic controls the other symptoms of RSD besides controlling the pain. Isn't a pain medication supposed to work ONLY for pain control?

Thank you.
