I went today for my first visit with the pain management doctor. After all these visits several other docs (which I know is normal, it's just frustrating), finally a doctor said "this is RSD", well, he said, "this is classic RSD".

I am NOT glad to have this diagnosis. I was so relieved that this doc believed me. I broke down and cried in his office when he told me how he believed me and how he was going to treat me and stand behind me as far as worker's comp goes--HE WILL FIGHT FOR ME.

I am going in for my first lumbar sympathetic block next Thursday. The doctor is going on vacation and will not be in town for several days but is going to come into town and do this on one of his vacation days because he knows time is of the essence. I think I may have found a good doctor.

I think that your situation and mine sound alike. I had a quack doctor that did not believe that I had anything wrong with me. I am now wheel chair bound. I pray that they caught yours early enough. That is the key. I have had two sympathetic nerve blocks and a radio frequency treatment to no evail. I am in stage two and headed fast to stage three. It is very disheartening. You will be in my prayers!
