I've recieved 3 injections in my spine and a trial stimulator in 2 years and company dr. says no more treatment is needed. oh, I've had reflex sympathetic dystrophy for 2 years. Does this sound right? what can I do to get them to treat me?

Did git a lawyer for the setteling part, YOU NEED ONE!!!!! So if you dont get lucky like I did, even the field and get a lawyer.Damned Doctors will let us die with inaction's, dont want to spend the time.

I'll say a prayer for the outcome.

  • ToddHow old are you?Read as much as you can about RSD. It is very misunderstood. You must find a Dr. that understands it. Don't be afraid to ask to be referred to another Dr. if you live in or near a large medical facility. We have found our best luck with pain mgmt Drs. My son has had it for about a year now. His right leg has been affected. It is now primarily in his ankle. We have finally decided it is something we have to learn to live with and to keep going. He is 15 and has progressed from a wheel chair, to crutches, to a cane. He has a wheel chair at school to help him thru the "bad days". Keep moving. Not being mobile is your enemy.Good luck Tama
