... Hey AZ girlie! I'm only a few months behind you. I was dx'd this past December and getting blocks since around Christmas time.

... Hello everyone. I'm new here but not with RSD. I've had for a year now. I got it 2 weeks after I turned 19. I'ts almost taken over every limb I have. It started in my left ankle with a sprain.

... Well with me, it started in my left ankle and went to my whole left leg pretty quickly, but I wasn't even diagnosed with RSD until a whole year went by, so it was too late for the blocks to get it. If you catch it within 3 or 4 months, they can usually take care of it. ... (3 replies)

... I think the worst part of this whole thing is no matter how much research we do to find out about this we really have no idea and that is the scariest part. I got the SCS and it was the only thing that helped my right arm. ... (11 replies)
... Hi, I'm kinda new here and saw your reply and it caught my eye as I went to a new primary doc yesterday and she said my RSD may be Causalgia. I thought it was the same thing, but a different name. ... (4 replies)
