You can still post here....but for ADVICE and treatment options,
the other forum has experienced people who have gone thru that.
From what I have read on that forum, there are early medications like calcium channel blockers, that help beginning RSD patients.
Treatment type is very important in early patients. Also stop using ice now that you have this diagnosis...heat is what they use for it. PN is the reverse...trauma and PN, and arthritis respond to cold treatment but not RSD.
There are some papers coming from Europe that claim high dose Vit C helps prevent RSD in trauma patients (wrist and ankle). It has to be done early, so now would be your window. 1000mg a day ..you can use Ester C which is easier on the stomach etc. The patients used this for 50 days. There is also a post (you can search for it) recently on high dose IV Vit C use for it being helpful.
This is a rather benign approach compared to other things that might be tried for you. So I think it merits consideration.
Some people like Emergen-C powder...as it works very fast.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.
