I am a 45 y/o male, occupation is police officer. I broke my ankle in Nov. 2009, 3 avulsion fractures. I was diagnosed with RSD/CRPS in March of this year. Pain radiates from my left ankle all the way to my lower back to my right knee. Right knee and thigh numb and swollen most of the time, even when lying in bed. I have had 4 lumbar nerve blocks and only helped 10% overall. Pain mgmt doc said I would never work again as an officer and has recommended rhizotomy if comp will pay. Anyone else have RSD? I sincerley hope you don't.
