Hi,

I would like to know what makes your RSD pain worse (please mention where your RSD is in your reply).

I have RSD in my left knee/leg.

What makes my RSD pain worse:
.........................................................
-Not taking medications for control of severe to excruciating chronic pain
-Not taking medications for control of breakthrough or incident pain

-Heat (especially "dry" heat, such as that of the sun)
-Cold (especially cold weather combined with wind and/or rain)
-Overdoing physical therapy or exercise
-Walking, running, jumping, kneeling, or squatting
-Standing a long time or standing in a moving vehicle
-Doing stairs
-Medical manipulation of the leg
-Invasive tests on the leg
-Physical trauma (falls, bumps...)
-Keeping the leg bent too long
-Immobilizers, braces, wraps, or bandages (ONLY if the knee feels hot or is sweaty)
-Rubbing or caressing (ONLY if the knee is hypersensitive to touch)
-Giving out of the leg (caused by damage to Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the knee)
.......................................................
Thanks.
