Hi my name his bruno, i from Portugal, in Europe. My interest in Simpathetic Dystrophy begin in four of Agost wend i have a work acident. My hand has crushed by a hidraulic cilinder of 60 bar. I has stuck by about 5 long minutes until someone could release me. Becouse i have cloubes, my skin wasn´t damage and on a RX my bones dosent break or frature. But my pain and sensitive on the skin are very high. After a two weeks my doctor diagnost Simpathetic Dystrophy and since then, i begin session of fisiotherapy every day , i try Ultra sound, Laser, Ionitation, mobilization, etc.
But every day is a pain in the **s, a complete painfull time. My hand some times are blue in the nail side and dark red on the fingers side. Its seems like a baloon ready to bloow, very hot, cant stand even the sun or hot water. Now the pains are begin to get higher and higher, all a way to my soulder. It seems like a burnign inside my bones. at night i can only sleep by taking sleeping pills and i m taking anti depressivs for the depression i have now becouse of this. From day to day, i m losing moves on my arm too, on the bath cant scrub my backs or stand up till the top. There are tow fingers that i since the acident dosent close or open completly , the thumb and the forefinger. My doctor says that the time and fisioteraphy will cure completly but i dont now. Every day it seems like i geting worse, some things that i before cant do now, like fishing or cook. Start doing something and my hand start bloowing, hot, pain,
I have done a magnetic resonance and it shows i tini atrophy of the hand tendons. My doctor dosent advice an operation is a cirugion for many years and it seems trustufull, but i m afraid of losing my hand!!

Please help, if you now someone with this problem, help me, If it hast for my family, i dont now what i do. THe pain i feel is something that i never felt before and over and over from sun to dawn. It incapacite
