RSD
I have had RSD for 12 years began following knee arthroscopic surgery was subsiding to tolerance then fell and had a severe sprain injury to foot on same leg.  RSD returned full blown.  I have had 5 superficial blood clots to this leg.  Painful, occlused, now varicosed veins put not life treatening.  I am as active as I can be.  Worked off walker and continual elevation of limb, get around with limp, boot when needed. Doing better since seeing MD more familiar with RSD.  Combined with that I have DDD and had disc replacement with plating at C 6/7.  Have total disc loss at T-12/L-1. Spondylo at L-5/S-1. I am 49.

My question:  I am now on 2100-2800 mg of neurotin, 100-150 mg Zoloft and have now been put on 10 mg nortriptyline.  I only use Lortab 10 if I am really hurting that is disrupts concentration or sleep. Any experience with these drug combinations?  Any long term complications known?  Does this lead to life long drug therapy in anyone's experience?

Thank you!

I don't know anything about those drugs.

My CRPS / RSDS only started a couple of months ago. I was on Hydrocodone / Acetaminaphen, liquid because I can't swallow pills, but I ran out and can't get any more. Most of the time my pain level is only about 3 on a scale of 0 - 10.

I also have cervical spondylosis, and migraines.
