    I have had rsd for the last 15 yrs. I have been to several different doctors. This is not something that goes away with time, it gets worse. I have it in my rt leg. I walk with a cane and if it was not for my family I don't know what I would have done. The first time I went into the er I was treated like a drug seeking idiot. For anyone who is going through this horrible and horrific disease I AM VERY SORRY. I am with a doctor now who understands this disease and is very helpful. I hope each of you can find some peace and maybe a pain free moment in your life. Its hard to do …but please hang in there.

    Great video! I completely understand the horrific pain involved with CRPS. I have had CRPS now for about 2.5 years. It started in my left ankle/foot and went up to about my knee for the first year then it all of a sudden started in my right ankle/foot and has crept up to about my right knee too! My pain is increasing as time goes on and my left ankle and 4 little toes are froze up now. Both my legs ache sooo bad now too on top of everything else involved with CRPS like completely hard swelling, burning and cold spells as well. This disease can really think you are crazy!! The symptoms change so much from day to day or really minute to minute! I pray for all of you fellow sufferers of this debilitating disease and hope one day the doctors will take our pain seriously! The FDA is the culprit in keeping us legitimate chronic pain patients from getting our medications!! It has got so bad now that I had to go to 5 different pharmacies to get my narcotic prescription refilled due to the lack of medicine! The FDA has put a limit on how much they can order now and there are more "legitimate" pain patients that need there medication than the pharmacies can provide!!! This is an OUTRAGE! I should be able to go to my local pharmacy and get all my medications without worrying if the entire county is out!! WE NEED TO SPEAK OUT PUBLICALLY AND DEMAND CHANGES!! WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE OUR MEDICINE READILY AVAILABLE AND NOT BE SCRUTINIZED! WHAT HAPPEN TO SUPPLY AND DEMAND? GET THE WORD OUT FOR CHANGE…WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER AND FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS TO LIVE A HALF WAY FUNCTIONAL LIFE WITH THIS AWFUL DISEASE!! WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND THE FDA ETC. TELLING THEM HOW THIS IS EFFECTING OUR LIVES! THE DRUG ABUSERS AREN'T SUFFERING….WE ARE!! THEY JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THE REAL PAIN OF CRPS AND ALL OTHER CHRONIC PAIN DISEASES! MY PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF YOU!!

    I had this bad when I came out of my plaster cast. I had it ALL up my right leg and foot.
    Just to let everyone know out there that there is hope, and I managed to spend 2 weeks of PT (which was the most painful fortnight of my life) on purely codeine and my life was hell.
    I just wanted to post this to let anyone know reading it that there is hope. CRPS never goes away, it's a sad fact, but you can learn to live with it, and by sticking with my PT I came off crutches in 3 weeks and I can now live my life.
    Like I said before, CRPS never goes away, but it does go into remission meaning that you don't need to be worried that (like how I felt) that the hell hole you're in will never end. It does.
    I don't want to sound like a arrogant or "trying to be better than anyone else" kind of person, but I was completely f&*%$& when I was doing PT. The doctors in the UK aren't like that in the US; they're SUPER reluctant to giving ANY pain relief. I had to fight to get CODEINE from the doctors, even when I could have just gone and got it from the shop and so it was probably harder for me because my doctors were completely incompetent.
    So there is hope. Don't let the pain  become a part of you. Just do your PT and you can join me in being a CRPS survivor – just like there are cancer survivors, we too should be proud we got through (probably & hopefully) the worst and most painful times of our lives. We have probably gone through even more than what some cancer survivors have. So live your life, because CRPS does and will go into remission (I'm the living proof!!), and hell, it may come back later on in our lives, or maybe never, but at least we'll be prepared next time for the "adventure" we're embarking on.
    I wish you guys a quick recovery, and as easily as possible.

    I truly understand this condition, its very painful. I went to the hospital to relieve my flare in my hands and feet. Do to pain my BP was 185/167 and im epileptic patient. I wear a helmet for my seizures. the helmets has many words on it as well as CRPS. the scary part is the ER doctors don't know what CRPS is. I had a breakthrough seizures as well lasting over 8.5 minutes long. most epileptic conditions last only 3 to 5 minutes. I almost died that night and was shipped to Albany medical center in up state N .Y I pray to all who go through this Hell we call CRPS.

    I have it in my big toe due to a sharp knock to it 2 weeks ago, cant even stand up. very painful, swollen and purple to look at. I have been hobbling around ever since. doesnt seem to be treatment that works, misdiagnosed as a spider bite so ended up on anti biotics for nothing.

    Thanks for helping educate the public. It is hard to understand what RSD is like, not only to us patients, but our families.

    thank u so much for the information. It lets others know that this is a real disease and not just something that was dreamed up by the ones that suffer with it mostly in silence.
