Living with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome/RSD

I could not have explained this better myself!
When I find blog posts from others with CRPS, and it’s that post that explains what CRPS is in their own words…. I always reblog it. I think it’s very important for people to 1) know about CRPS/RSD but
2) See how there are many similar aspects in each of us… But we all experience different things as well. Which is one reason that I feel it’s difficulty in treating the condition… Bc not one case is the same.
We must hold on to hope, doctors are slowly but surely starting to understand what is actually going on, and what CRPS actually is.
Soon, they will find more effective treatments. We are fighters. If Fighting through the pain until they find treatments, being a Guinea pig for doctors so they can try the different treatments/theories,etc. what it takes to help us all “put out the fire”, then I’ll continue to do so.
I think we are close, keep fighting! We got this 😉
