UPDATE: Having lots of issues. The flair that was thought to be RSD was osteoporosis from the RSD. Having vascular issues and more. Trying to get healthy.

........ Just to let anyone know who looks at my stitching, I am having trouble with my hand again. The medical people think it is the RSD back again. Sooooo It will be a while but I will be watching all of your beautiful stitching come to life. God Bless


by tlp22 12 Feb 2017 For those that really want to know about RSD or CRPS. It is compared to the pain in Cancer. You can't cure it but you can get it into remission. With lots of hard work and therapy. I am so thankful to the doctors and therapists that helped me through since my initial diagnosis in 2003. God Bless.

Laura please refer to the link above I posted. It is called by 2 names RSD or CRPS. the RSD is reflex sympathetic dystrophy. The CRPS is Complex regional pain syndrome. Same exact disease. Lots of people thought that is was feeling sorry for an injury or the pain but, it is referring to the sympathetic nervous system. Thanks for asking.

You know how "a penny saved is a penny earned", so rest your hand now so you can get back to stitching. All the best...

Hope you are better soon. What is RSD?

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Nerves damaged. I have this in my right arm/wrist after an injury, followed by surgery and intense therapy. It can become very painful, but, so far, mine has been mild. Cold weather seems to aggravate mine quite a bit!!

tlp22 by tlp22 12 Feb 2017

Thanks cfidl. Yes anangel it can happen as you say and also from a grass cut a sprained ankle . It is when the sympathetic nervous system goes crazy. You may have a minor injury but you feel like you literally had your appendage ran over bv a train. I have had it in it's worse form over several years I finally got enough movement and strength back to be able to sew. I lost my job that I loved and lots more. I pray that no one has to go through it. Right now mine was cause by a mild illness (pain wise) that put me in the hospital overnight. I am doing better and hope to be sewing in a few days.
