Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Message Board


Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index


Good morning,

It's been a while since I've posted on these health boards (another issue) but thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone can relate. I actually wanted to post a pic but can't figure out how.

Anyway, I had left foot reconstruction surgery in July and August. About 3 weeks ago I started with the stabbing, burning pain, spasms, hypersensitivity (water in shower can't directly hit the foot), off and on sweating, blotchy coloring on foot (red/purple), swelling & I am still numb from about mid foot to toes (bottom only). The foot doctor put me on Lyrica which I've been taking for about a week and haven't noticed much of a difference. I'm going to a pain management doctor tomorrow and hopefully he can confirm whether or not this is CRPS and start treating it.

So what do you think? Does it sound like it could be CRPS? I know no one can diagnose it over the internet but just based on some of your past experiences could it be? My PT seems to think it may be as well.

Any insight would be appreciated & if anyone knows how to post pics let me know and I can attach mine.

TIA!

To me it does sound like it.. if you read on you to will sees those are common amongst our symptoms.. and although it does sound like it I pray for you that they find another reason for all of those symptoms so it isn't RSD and a possibility of real treatment exists for you.. If for what ever reason this turns out to be RSD/CRPS then you have fond a good place to research.. Again I pray for your sake it isn't RSD.. Good luck with your PM DR.
