Hi I saw your post about going through menopause. I was 29 when I had a radical hysterectomy. My 4th child was only 6 months old. I woke from the surgery with all kinds of things happening to me. I had sweats so bad and my head was just a little messed up. Things I wanted to say just wouldn't come out. The surgeon said I was going to go through menopause and that it possibly was menopause. That stayed with me for about 10 years. It was horrible going through that. I hope you are over it soon

Hi I'm sorry you have this disease. It can be very complicated as yes it is different for everyone. You are still young. I'm 60 now and deal with it daily. I'm one of those people who get ketamine infusions and then within a few days the pain slowly comes back. I'm sorry your insurance won't cover it but I think if you get just an appointment with Dr Hanna to see if he can help with your problem it may be to your benefit. I've seen him work with people who have financial difficulties. Also you can get in touch with the Rsd/CRPS. Association in Connecticut. They also have helped people as well. Google for the phone number and ask to speak to Jim Broatch. He's the president.. He's a very kind man who talked to me a few times when I first got RSD. Good man. He's also on Facebook and there are groups of people who have RSD /CRPS. I really hope you can get in a good group. I personally don't want the stimulator. I have a dear friend who has it and she has gone through a few problems with it. The leads came off and she had to have the surgery again. I wish you luck with it and I hope it helps you. God bless ✌ ❤🌟 Mary Edwards

I've had RSD for 7 years now. It started after a total hip replacement. I woke up screaming and had drop foot. You are right about one thing. The weather plays alot with this disease. I live in Florida and when hurricanes comes near us and the barometric pressure changes my RSD is out of control. What started in my left leg is now in my right foot and both hands. I see a pain management Dr who uses ketamine to help me with the pain. He's wonderful. He's even on the news from Time to time. His name is Ashraf Hanna. He is in Clearwater Florida and sees people from all over the country.. I also developed Gastropyrisis. It's a disease where my stomach doesn't empty. Instead my food comes back up sometimes even when I'm sleeping. I take several medications for my stomach. I'm also taking gabapentin and methadone for my RSD. It does spread. I've met a few people who have it full body. The disease has been around for over 100 years. It started back in world War 2. Dr's couldn't understand why soldiers who had to have a limb amputated were in this insane pain. At the time they called it phantom pain. The patients were given high doses of morphine to control their pain. Sometimes it worked and others would scream constantly. It has only been a few years since the Fda began to recognize it as a chronic pain. I hope I've been able to answer your questions. If I can help I will… In peace ✌ ❤ 🌟 Mary

I pretty much have the same things every day. Toast with butter and coffee for breakfast, a scramble egg sandwich for lunch and since I'm wheelchair bound my husband makes our meals so my evening meals do vary.
