My name is Desiray'(Desi) and like the title says, I am new here. I have been diagnoised with RSD after having carpal tunnal surgery. All my blood work showed no other diseases. My Dr. may also suspect I have fibromyalgia. I did read up some, about that disease, and I didn't like what I read!:eek: Anyway, like I said I do have RSD and I got that in Jan. of 2007 after carpal tunnal surgery. I was in denial soooooooooo bad, that all 5 Dr.'s I seen for that, must have thought I was nuts!:D LOL Well, the final Dr. I seen was a specialist and he said yes, 100% RSD.
Now with this fibromyalgia, I don't really know how I got that?? Hmmmm.. anyone know? Can it be relatd to the RSD? I hope that I am on the right board for RSD and fibromyalgia? If not, I truly am so sorry.:o Well, I hope I will hear something from one of you, as this is bothering me so. By that, I mean having this fibromyalgia and this painful chronic RSD is enough to make me want to just hide under the covers. I mean, what's next?? I'm sorry to keep going on and on. Thanks for the vent, and I will be awaiting a reply soon. Thank you all!~ Love, Desi

  • Hi blaze!No, it is not lyme disease. I know 100% that it's not this disease. I never had the red bulls eye circle, I never was bit by a tic. How can I, when I don't live near woods? grassy lands?? Hmmm.. I will bring it up to my Dr. though He is awsome about wanting to do tests. I do know that I have RSD Thanks so much for the links, Blaze.. very interesting, I may say. wow!~Love, Desi
