Re: rsd


Thankyou for your response. I've just recently been diagnosed with RSD within the last month so what had happened was that somehow I had a herniated disk in my lower back and it took 7 doctors and 6 months to figure out what was wrong with me so they did a diskectomy and that didn't work so 5 months later they did a spinal fusion and that didn't work for me so my surgeon sent me to my pain care specialists and he tried epidural steroid injections in my back and that didn't work and I also had been going to physical therapy after both surgeries which was very painful. So now my pain care dr. said that he thought that I had it all the time but he wanted to try the shots anyway just incase it would give me some kind of relief. I'm trying to read as much as I can right now about it and I've been putting up with the pain for a little over a year and a half now which I know that is not a lot when you've spoke to people who have been dealing with it for a lot of years like you have. The next thing I am going to try is the physical therapy in the swimming pool above 90 degrees, I've heard that that has helped a lot of people and I will hope and pray for remission.

I'm also trying a new doctor right now his web site is and his name is Dr. John Ellwood he is a chiropractor but does not do any adjustments at all, he has a machine that you can see on his web site and it does not hurt at all and I'm going to give it a try I've only been there the first time so I still haven't made up my mind about it yet but it deals all with the nervous system and my husband is really sold on the idea so I'm trying it and the main thing is it doesn't hurt.

Thanks again for the answer.
