... that it was no big deal. The Only block that messed me up was shot number 5. I was tense that day and it made hard to get to the nerve. She ended up hitting some nerve that made my groin feel like I got kicked.. I hurt for about 2 days and subsided. ... (5 replies)

... My doctor said last week, I will get no better, Lumbar Sympathetic Nerve Blocks failed, and still in great pain. He said that the next logical course was to have implanted in my back, a stimulation module. ... (0 replies)
... but going by your symptoms, it sounds like everything that people who have it has! Mine is in my lower extremities and it is just now starting in my arm. I had a lumbar sympathetic nerve block which is like the block you asked about, only its in the low back where they do it. Anyways, for most people, it does help! ... (1 replies)
... Hello ive had rsd/crps since 2011 and have done well over 40 SGNB,s and they do help infact it is the only thing that pushes the intense pain back for about 8 days . I have rsd in both sides left and right feet so i alternate the injections because they cant treat both sides at the same time so im always in pain trying to play catch up and dealing with this every day it gets...

... I have heard they work well for some people but there are others like me who they have totally backfired on. Mine was in my right foot and after the block, I was in horrible pain from my back all the way down my leg. I lived on pain killers 24 hours a day which only took the edge off. This lasted for 6 weeks until it finally went back to where it started. It has now... (15 replies)
... I've had RSD since 1985, and have been in and out of remission quite a few times over the years. As I've gotten older and gone through a total of 5 surgeries (still need a total knee replacement, but have to get my weight back down first) the pain has become a full-time serious issue. I've been on countless medications over the years with various levels of pain control... (15 replies)
... thanks! I'm really trying to stay positive through this whole thing..I've had three surgeries on my right foot and with each one, the pain and burning has gotten worse..I just don't want more burning and pain in my back..I would lose my mind.. (15 replies)
... she had a lumbar sympathetic block. She had it Friday and today she actually noticed a difference. She has RSD in her foot. ... (10 replies)
... Hi Michelle, I'm so sorry about your fall. I can understand your fear about it coming back and I hope it doesn't. It's such a rollercoaster ride, isn't it? Be careful in that ice and snow...spring is coming :). Sharon :) (32 replies)
... Hey Karen, You said that so well.. That is how you determine it... I went for three blocks, not one of them did a thing.. If anything it made it worse... I think I was SIP right off the bat.. I know that SIP involves you SNS.. and my rsd came from herniated dics ... The dr had said. right away that I injured all the nerves going down the sides of my spine and the nerves... (32 replies)
... Michelle, Thanks for posting in the midst of your busy busy life!!! I know you're working now and then you come home and take care of your own family!! You story is amazing and so is your strength. I will talk to my P.M. doc and ask her what she thinks about whether mine is SMP or SIP. I'm concerned that she may not know the answer. I'm also concerned she doesn't know... (32 replies)
... Ask your doc if it only stays in one place and doesn't spread, then how can he explain a vast majority of people with rsd that have it full body? *snorts* See how he handles that one! LOLOLOL Hugs, Karen (32 replies)
... Tigerlily.. I am so sorry it took this long to get back to your question.. I've been working full time the past couple weeks so I don't get on here as much as I would like to... To answer your question about the lidocaine working for SIP.. I've met pts who had one or the other.. and Yes. It has helped them.. I met a lady who's had RSD for over 22 yrs.. She finally... (32 replies)
... Tigerlily Your dr is right about the lidocaine infusion.. They do come with Risk but the risk is low. and you are monitored very closely. I can see when he means by last resort.. I've bad a lot of treatments blocks meds etc.. I'll tell you.. none of them worked.. Not one.. only the lidocaine infusion.. I guess its his job to try other things first before that......

... Karen, Thank you for all your information -- It is very helpful. I've come to realize that doctors give the options, but man oh man, it's difficult to decide. I wonder what my doctor will do tomorrow when I see him. At my last visit, he discussed blocks -- Even those scare me because I don't want spread. I guess I'm just afraid, period. Fear is so awful, and I've got... (32 replies)
... Well...first off, there is NO risk of becoming an addict. Getting addicted to pills of any kind can only happen if you don't have pain and taking them gives you a "high" or any kind of altered state of mind. Since I know for a fact none of us ever get high taking any pain med, then there will not be any addiction problem. Now, to use the proper terms, we become physically... (32 replies)
... Tigerlilly, I called my RSD doc this past Monday and he got back today and we played phone tag all day so should hear from him tomorrow. Not sure what will be offered, and it is very frightening reading about all the complications from our options. I definitely want to stay away from the scs -- I know it can work, as I've read on here from people who had success with it but... (32 replies)
... Great idea with the vitamins! Taking them at the same time with everything else will definitely interfere with the absorption of them and probably haven't given you much benefit as a result. Taking them at least 2 hours after is your best bet. Most people probably don't know when you take iron pills, they shouldn't be taking them with calcium as this pretty much renders the...
