I'm a native Texan with a love for Russia. I have a passion for cooking, photography, teaching ESL, my dog (Kiwi) and kitty (Elvis), and coffee. I suffer from RSD/CRPS and take one day at a time. I try my best to find the funny things in life!
Day 6 of 6: Spinal Infusions. Pain level 5/10. It’s the last day of infusions and I’m so happy with my results. The burning pain in my legs has decreased significantly! I do have a little bit of throbbing type pain in my left foot. The only thing I’m not really pleased about are the intense muscle spasms. :/ I also had a reaction to the bandage they used for the surgery so I can’t really sit. Besides that, I think the infusions were a success and I’m ready to head home. #RSD #CRPS (at University Medical Center)
Day 5 of 6: Spinal Infusions. Pain level 5/10. No burning pain in my left foot! :D A little bit of burning pain in my left leg but nothing like it was on Day 1. Muscle spasms have returned and are quite intense. So happy that the burning pain has been reduced so much!! :D #RSD #CRPS @williamkidd thank you for taking such amazing care of me while I have been in the hospital. 💗 (at University Medical Center)
Day 4 of 6: Spinal Infusions. Pain level 5/10. The surgery to move my epidural catheter was a success. My left leg and foot are completely numb. The burning pain has reduced tremendously! No muscle spasms. :)) Im so happy with the results so far! #RSD #CRPS (at University Medical Center)
Day 3 of 5 - Spinal Infusions. Pain level 8/10. Unfortunately, the pain in my left foot returned and the burning pain is worse in my left leg. The doctor ordered an x-ray which showed that the epidural catheter moved so I’m having surgery in the morning to fix it. :)) Hopefully the surgery will be a success and the burning pain will start to decrease along with the muscle spasms. #RSD #CRPS (at University Medical Center)
After a hard night of having a 10/10 pain level, the burning pain returning to my left foot, and intense sporadic muscle spasms. @williamkidd surprised me with these beautiful roses. He said they were special because they have orange tips to show awareness for #RSD #CRPS. Really brightened up my morning! (at University Medical Center)
Day 2 of 5 - Spinal Infusions. Pain level 7/10. No pain in my left foot! :D Can you believe it? I’m so happy! The doctor also let me wear normal clothes. :)) My surgery site started bleeding today. :/ The doctor put a new bandage on the site and it seems to have stopped the bleeding for now. Still burning in my left and right inner thighs. Burning in my arms has decreased. Muscle spams have increased. The doctor has given me Synera patches for spams. #RSD #CRPS (at University Medical Center)
