Welcome to the HW form. I am so sorry to learn of your diagnosis. Did you have an injury?
I would also encourage you, if you haven't done so already, to have a thorough evaluation at a treatment center specializing in RSD (I believe it's now called CRPS by many doctors). I wonder what cutting edge treatments may be out there for someone with your age and background. i knew a woman with RSD a couple of years ago who told me she'd read of doctors in Germany putting people in hyperbaric (sp?) chambers and about
50% had their RSD cured. This would be a highly risky treatment, though, and I don't know if anyone in the U.S. is doing it.
I should apologize as I've not visited your blog site and you may already know all of this!
Anyway welcome. This is a great group for support, and I know there are other RSD/CRPS folks in here.
p.s. I did a quick read of the most recent entry in your blog and was quite impressed with your interviewing and writing skills. I haven't read any of your background, but wondered if a career in journalism was an interest?
