Not to be Debbie Downer, but you are also early on in the RSD battle, right ? Worse swelling, worse sweating, worse redness, etc could all still be in your future if the RSD progresses.
On the upside, you may still have time and hopefully your docs will try to be aggressive with getting ahead of the RSD monster.
How did it start for you ? How long has it been going on ?
I know you are 'waiting' on the Lyrica.....What else have you tried to help manage the pain ?
