Hi Vallerie,
I too am dealing with full body RSD that came from a work related injury. My arms were injured which started the RSD and from there it has spread to full body. Mine happened four years ago and I am still out of work unable to return. It is such a rough adjustment for all of us. I am so sorry for all the pain and frustration you have been through. I know how sad it is to have to be in the hospital so many times and have to take so many meds just so you can get out of bed in the morning.Keep us updated and hopefully things will turn out just how you want them too. I hope for lower pain levels for all of us and someday a cure.Talk to you soon!

Hi Vallerie,
Wow you have been through so much in such a short time, your mind body and soul must be spinning! I will keep you in my prayers and hope your pain levels can get to a manageable level soon. I also hope your WC settles with you and doesn't drag it out all that time, they don't realize that all that added stress only makes your physical pain worse! Hang in there and stay strong!
