How can I get healed from Causalgia?

I'm in trouble. I have had Causalgia or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy for 7 years, and it prevents me from doing many things during cold weather especially; like driving, sleeping at night from the pain, working, participate in family events.
They suggest a treatment from the civil war to get better. But those I've known who have tried operations get better for a little while only to end up with more pain. ......HELP Please!

Samento or a form of Cat's Claw might help

If I had your condition, I would start taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, cayenne, cinnamon with a dash of turmeric(in the ginger family) and a pinch of unrefined sea salt in a cup of carrot juice three times a day to remineralize and increase the btu's of my body during cold days. Add a little more cayenne each day as you learn to tolerate it.

A drop of wild oregeno in a shot glass of apple juice with a tablespoon of cinnamon would also help with deep down parasite cleansing.  (+ info)

are students studying to be a neurosurgeon required to take a course in diagnosing rsd?

RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) is also known as CRPS (chronic regional pain syndrome) and Causalgia. Causalgia is the worst of the forms of the disease and that is what I have been diagnosed with.

Physicians are required to know about many many illnesses, I doubt an entire course would be dedicated to diagnosing RSD, in fact I can guarantee you of it. I'm sorry about your diagnosis.  (+ info)

do you know anyone with RSD? now known as CRPS? It is a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System?

what meds do they take? im on gabapentin(neurontin) for the burning( called causalgia) 2400 mg a day
this is a great site www.RSDHope.org

I have RSD/CRPS, and have had it for 2 years. I have been on many different medications everything from Lyrica, to Cymbalta, to various pain medications. I've found that most meds do not help me much, so I do not take any meds currently. Some people are helped by nerve medications such as neurontin, lyrica etc. Good luck!  (+ info)

I want to get my trainer at school to know about this condition?

Long story short I developed Causalgia or sometimes known as RSD, And it was a very long time before doctors diagnosed me and I want my athletic trainer at school to be aware of this to maybe help others for me he had no idea what was going on with me, how can i bring up giving him information on this without seeming like I am telling him like he doesn't know anything.

P.s I told him what I had and he said he had no idea what it was.
Thanks for the answers so far.
But, I don't know how to bring it up..
Just walk into his office and start talking about it?
I don't play sports anymore due to this condition.
So I never see him, unless I purposely go into his building/office.

gotta go above his head;; I know of NO athletic trainer, therapist, or frankly ANY medical professional that will not himself (herself) do research in regards to a person's condition if they don't know;; this is on his head since you told him you had the diagnosis;; with you knowing about the condition, just make sure you adjust your workout to not increase your symptoms;; if ya give him enough feedback when he questions you, it will also help him;; but he's frankly being a lazy BUM!! go above him, to the next in line & tell him/her about your diagnosis & you telling him & his reaction;; it's in his ballcourt now!!  (+ info)
