... Hi Chris, I have RSD in both legs too..from foot surgery on my right foot in 2000. We need to minimize sources of anxiety and depression. It's not just a matter of vanity either..being overweight is not good for RSD legs, as it affects our circulation. Weight gain is a cruel side-effect..the pain is bad enough! I tried Lyrica too, and it had very sedating side-effects, so I... (51 replies)

Now taking Topomax
Nov 18, 2008

And as you can see, I'm not on that much. So hopefully prayer helps!! Thanks for all of the support. Susan (51 replies)
