A New Beginning: My Life with RSD

A New Beginning: My Life with RSD.

The above blog belongs to featured Blog Talk Radio Host Trudy Thomas.

The Living with HOPE Radio Show is Sponsored by the Power of Pain Foundation.

 

Living with HOPE began in 2007 under the original title Living with RSD. It was Trudy’s hope to learn more information about her own health issue, the debilitating and painful illness RSD/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and with that a show was born. Trudy interviews doctors, therapists, caregivers, and patients; both traditional and alternative practitioners with expertise that runs from prevention to cutting edge technology.

Trudy empowers, informs and educates her listeners with information that may not be readily available in their local area. Through the power of the internet she has the ability to communicate with and speak to some of the most knowledgeable doctors and researchers in the world.

Some Topics have included: Meditation, Biofeedback, Guided imagery, Relaxation techniques, Breathing exercises, Holistic healing, Coping strategies, Distraction, Depression, Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Pain Management, Medications, Chronic Pain Treatments, Ketamine, Calmare (Scrambler Therapy), Cortical Integrative Therapy (CIT®), Mirror  therapy (Mirror Box), DMSO, Low Light Laser Treatment Therapy (LLLT), Functional Restoration, IVIG, Neuropathies, RSD/CRPS, Neuro Inflammatory Disease (NID) and much more.

FAQ: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy | The Dr. Oz Show

FAQ: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy | The Dr. Oz Show.

 

Philip Getson, D.O. • Yesterday (July 25, 2013) “I was given the honor of having a post on RSD featured on droz.com Please feel free to comment on it” 
“I am delighted to get the disease the exposure it so deserves”. “Here is the link for the RSD post” These above are the personal words of Dr. Getson, I have quoted.

I am delighted that Q & A’s regarding CRPS/RSD (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) made it back to Dr. Oz. via Dr. Getson.

In addition, the differences between CRPS/RSD and Fibromyalgia were touched on.

Paula Abdul tried to do her part in sharing the debilitating outcome this illness causes, but as some of us know television editing can leave a lot out.

Even so I think Paula made her point. There were some people that tried to convince me of how terrible she did, I re watched that segment I can’t tell you how many times and the bottom line is she did great! How much can you do in so little time. It wasn’t an RSD specific show in the first place it was to showcase a vitamin line of healthier living. So yep, good job for what she had to work with.

For Dr. Philip Getson who has been educating and treating CRPS/RSD for decades, I am honored to have spoken to him briefly via email and look forward to again. I also look forward to the P.A.I.N. SUMMIT hosted by the Power of Pain Foundation during Pain Awareness month where he will be Guest Lecturing. I would love to meet him in person and attend the conference in Arizona but if not, I will still be attending via UStream and have already registered.
