https://www.health.ny.gov/disease... 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.
Be praying for you Tip99
Thank you. Got home form Hospital today. Thumbs up the healing continues. Multiple issues. But, we are on the healing side.
What does " RSD " mean??
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...
Thank you. Maybe in a couple more days.
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!!
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.
Hope you are back stitching soon!
Take care of yourself and hope it improves for you
I hope your hand heals very quickly, and your back doing what you enjoy, take care of yourself first. Sandra.
Thank you. Just so bored not being able to stitch. I have all these projects ready to go for Christmas and here I sit not able to cut or stitch. But It will get better then watch out.
I hope your hand heals fast. Can not even imagine not to be able to do the crafts I enjoy. Praying for healing.
Thanks so much. Feels like a fish out of water.
