... Hi, I've had RSD/CRPS for almost a year now, and it's not excruciating anymore...I've had three nerve blocks, am taking Lyrica, Paxil, Klonopin, and Lortab (on bad days), and I'm able to work. I'm managing it. But it has taken away my joy in life. Not due to depression, really...just knowing that it's always there, even if it is managed. And that my life will likely never... (9 replies)
... Michelle You asked about the Lyrica, i do take it 300mg per day, i don't think the swellings were made any worse through these meds (i am overweight to start with!) but i do believe it has contributed to my weight gain in general. I was tested for anaemia some time ago and that came back ok, at least something is right! I wish i lived in a single level house (bungalow) as we... (18 replies)

Lay it on the line as far as money goes and if they are good, they will tell what their experience is. It was my... (14 replies)
