Basically, I am having a lot of trouble dealing with not only the pain but, also the mental part as well
I am somewhat new to this as well. All I can tell you is to read as much as you can on the net. Research for a good doctor and ask alot of questions. I myself have noticed there are not alot of people my way that know what RSD is. It is great being in careplace and meting the people that understand the way we feel. If you ever wanna chat send me a message. I understand the mental part. It is very hard and I am in my therapist office 2x a week. You need to really have a great support system. If you don’t have one at least you are in the right place.
Hugs to ya…
Chris and family
Thank you so much for your response. I am having a very hard time. I do
have one person as a support, but even though they are very caring and
sympathetic, I feel very alone at times.
Things are very rough for me now. I haven’t been able to work for 8 months
and I am terrified of what is going to happen to me. Have you been able to
work, and have any of your treatments helped you with the pain? I have been
on pain medication since this all began, but a lot of the time, they just
barely touch the surface of the pain.
Has therapy helped you? My doctor did prescribe an antidepressent for me
recently, but so far it hasn’t really helped. I am hoping that in time it
will. I was thinking about trying to find a therapist, but have been hesitant as
to whether they could really do anything for me.
Thank you again, for responding, and I hope that your days go well for you.
Hugs to you,
