Following an injury or surgery, we expect the pain will eventually end but for more than one million people the pain lingers, often forever. Read more

I'm still amazed at the number of healthcare professionals that either don't belive in RSD or minimize the seriousness of its impact on patients.
I've had many of my patients come to me after being told there was nothing their doctors could do for them--this isn't true by the way.
My heart goes out to you Yelena but don't give up.
Best wishes,

I would love to talk to Yelena, because I have RSD and have found no help or hope and I would love to be evaluated by these doctors. My email address is marymanyfeathers@yahoo.com,
when you write I will give you my telephone number. Please I could use all and any information, I have been to many doctors even in Vermont. One tells me it Lymphedema the other RSD and the other "I don't Know" HELP
Thank you, Mary K.

Yelena, can you give me the name of the doctor that told you that you had rsd..I have been to many doctors even in Vermont and no one can tell me what I have. My symptoms are the same as yours so I know the pain and the change in life that you are going through and my heart goes out to you.

thank you

Why would you agree to go on television and run and article that gives hope to people and then shut your door to them when they ask you for help (doctor’s names)? You should feel good about yourself knowing people are looking to you for answers and hope. This is why I don’t read the newspaper or watch the news, you only get enough information, to make you wonder or drive you crazy. When I was told about you and the articles…I saw a ray of hope once again but again the information was not readily available for the public. I called the two doctors mentioned and got no answers.
