People with RSD?CRPS

I have had RSD/CRPS for 2 years from a cut which I am unable to get to all of it at this time but I was wondering how many people from the ages 5 and up who got this syndrome from an injury or surgery which was caused or not caused by someone? Thank you..peppy1201 a 24 year old girl

I'm 24 a mom, daughter and husband. I have had RSD/CRPS for almost 2 years now and I know how all of you feel; the pain and flares up are unbareable at times. I have lost my healthcare job because of the injury that caused it. I have been helping the national foundation for RSDSA for donations and spreading the word that this is for real; not just for adults but for kids as well. Everyone should join and if you can't find it I can give you the link and the main man in charge who I keep in touch with. No one should go through this. I know everything about the neurologists, pain managment medications and injections, orthopedic surgeons and hospitalizations. You have good days and bad days. I have hope that one day there will be a cure and we can have faith and hope that our RSD/CRPS might go into remission but we should not give up! Spirits might be done in your times of need but we can all make it. Support is best from anyone even if it's from a stranger who has the  same thing you do. If you want to be-friend me, be my guest. I will compfort and help anyone who asks and if you would like to know more about me as well, all you need to do is ask.

Hi there. I understand your predicament knowing the syndrome. There is no cure for this but it can be slowed down. Physical and occupational therapy should be started.  Medications could be prescribed like pain medicines, steroids, certain blood pressure medicines, bone loss medications like biphosphonates and antidepressants. Talk therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy or psychotherapy can assist you in tackling chronic pain. Nerve blocks, intrathecal drug pumps, spinal cord stimulator, and surgical sympathetectomy. Earlier the diagnosis, better the prognosis and delay in diagnosis may cause changes to bone and muscle irreversible. Hope this helps. Take care.
