How are you feeling now? I feel sorry that you have to go through all this.
When were you diagnosed of RSD? Why were you diagnosed? Did you have trauma to your knee? Which knee joint are you describing as RSD?
What treatment options are you on?
The treatment of RSD is difficult. Approximately half of the patients can be managed nonoperatively.
Desensitization measures include massage, electrical stimulation, and heat and ice treatments. Active range of motions should be encouraged, since disuse perpetuates the pain cycle; however, passive motion beyond the patient's tolerance may exacerbate the pain.
What did the doctor say as how long will take for recovery?
Keep me informed about the disease progression.
