Hi I'm new to this board and so excited to have found it! After suffering from chronic leg pain (spasms) for a year and a half I was able to conquer them 100% in four months. In June, what I thought was a sprained swollen big toe, spiraled into a nightmare of nerve and vascular pain in both feet. After being misdiagnosed with Lyme and rheumatoid arthritis, I was diagnosed with RSD. My feet turn colors, ice cold, feel like burning frostbite from hell and all my toes feel broken. I could go on and on but I actually called DR. Schubiner to confirm if this disease is really the most extreme form of TMS. He called me back! It was a relief to hear from an expert that this was the case since every Dr. has told me its not "psychosomatic". I realize this is a process but there is sooooo little info. on this topic. All the stories on the internet are such gloom and doom. I had scrambler therapy, a lumbar nerve block and a ketamine infusion (hallucinated for four hours!) Uuuuugh! My homelife is super stressful because I have two small children and my younger son is severely autistic. I was wondering if anyone has any insight into my situation? I do believe I will beat this but I have to admit this is the most daunting pain I have ever faced. I also developed severe tendonitis from walking funny. I've been in a wheelchair for a few weeks just to rest the tendons. any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
