Sparkey- I take Effexor XR for the RSD pain, it helps but doesn't stop it all. I also take darvocet when it gets bad. I sleep with a electric mattress pad that seems to help as well. I avoid cold air drafts as well as it doesn't take much cold air to set it off and cause pain in my arm that feels as it is on fire. I have RSD in both arms and the top of my head. When it is bad I have a hard time brushing my hair as can't stand to touch my head. So long hair had to go and had a perm put in so I can wash and go.
They tried Lycra but I could not take it.
Good luck in finding something that at least makes the paiin where you can live with it.
Thank all of you for the prayers, I know the lord will hear them and something good will come out of them.

Thank you Vic. I will have to write those drugs down and ask my doctor about them when I see him. I know he was not to keen on the last pain clinic having me on Oxycontin. He went on and on about trying to take me off it. I take percocet and that and it was the only longer lasting med that made the pain go away to work all day or I would of ended up in bed crying in pain. I still have very bad days with even taking the oxy so I can imagine without. It has such a bad rep. with alot of people and doctors and personally I have gone about 4 or 5 days without and missed it but did not go crazy without.
If I can find a longer lasting drug or better controlled drug I prefer to change it. I personally did not want to be on the oxy and loved taking the methadone as it was the best pain reliever but had a rash from it. It worked so well for the pain. I have now been on this Topamax for a few days and now waking up with the bad tingling in my feet and hands. I hope I get the other side effect of weight loss.LOL. Other than pain relief, that has not worked yet. I go for a MRI today of the cervical area and hopefully they find a big bulging disc and it is not RSD and can be treated. Thank you for your help Vic and I wish you well.
PS. I thought of a perm myself..lol and thinking of a nice haircut as my hair is getting so long now and hard to wash and brush without pain.
