Someone very close to me has RSD. They have recently had surgery to help ease the pain, but after surgery went wrong, the pain has spread.
It breaks my heart to hear everytime this slow killer spreads. I ask that my friends, and their friends just donate a dollar, or a second of your time to spread the word.

My fathers RSD started in his leg, with an injury related to work. This was a few years ago, the pain has only gotten worse. I see him hide in the shadows and ask why, he tells me because the sunlight feels like someone is slicing open his leg. This is only one example of many. To see the pain spread, it really breaks my heart. This past year, he has gone to several doctors, as the pain has gotten worse. My father and mother went to see a new doctor, who has background in this sort of thing. They said that they had a surgery that has worked for some, and my father just wanted the pain to go away, so he agreed to have it done. My father had the surgery, everything was ok, until it wasn't. Not a week after surgery, my father had to have emergency surgery to take out the electrodes they had put into his spine. He is no longer able to sleep on his stomach, among other things.
I hate seeing him in this pain, I don't know what else to do but pray, and hope that my friends and family will do the same.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), RSD is "a chronic pain condition that is believed to be the result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems."

According to MedicineNet, RSD involves "irritation and abnormal excitation of nervous tissue, leading to abnormal impulses along nerves that affect blood vessels and skin."

Animal studies indicate that norepinephrine, a catecholamine released from sympathetic nerves, acquires the capacity to activate pain pathways after tissue or nerve injury, resulting in RSD.



There is so much more going on inside of these people than they lead us to believe.

A Recent Update from my Father:
TO KEEP EVERYONE INFORMED ON WHATS GOIN ON IN MY LIFE ;HAD MRI MONDAY AND FINDINGS NOT SO GOOD!! THERE IS KYPHOTIC ANGULATION OF T10 & T11. THERE IS FLUID COLLECTION MEANING A LEAK IN THE SPINAL CORD. MODERATE SPONYLOSIS W/DERFORMANS W/ BROAD-BASED POST POSTERIOR DISC OSTEOPHYTE COMPLEX AT T10 AND T11. WELL THATS THE BASICS ON MY BACK AND LEG IS STILL BURNIN LIKE IT WAS DIPPED IN HELL!!!


Update:
Kyphosis is a progressive spinal disorder. this disorder causes a deformity like a curving of the spine. In other words his spine is starting to bend over kinda like a hunchback. Right now its just in the areas of the T10 and T11 vertebrae. also, where the Dr had to shave the bones down in his spine there is basically like spinal fluid deposits that have collected. it is somewhat normal to get them after the type of surgery he had but they should have gone away after a few weeks. And his has not. The only way to get rid of the now is to re-open the area and surgically drain them. Then put a pressure bandage around the area to make sure it closes completely. The MRI also shows, posterior disc osteophyte complex. Which means bone spurs basically. When your spine begins to weaken, either due to aging, degenerative diseases, obesity, improper use, or overexertion, your body tries to produce extra nodules of bone. When disc osteophyte complex develops and a series of bone spurs forms on multiple vertebrae, the space surrounding the intervertebral discs becomes compressed and there is a danger of the bone spurs in the spine exerting pressure on the nerve roots or the spinal cord. and this is all happening at the T10 and T11 vertebrae.
