It is possible for RSD to go away or go into remission.  Do your doctors say what they think the cause of your chronic pain is now?

your story is very heart breaking. when i was 13 years old a boy threw me off a 6ft wall at school and i landed on my neck and got R.S.D. from my neck to the tips of my fingers. I have no use of my right arm. I have went threw 16 proceedures and even A-steam therapy well nothing worked so they did a spinal cord stimulater that i got on december 16th 2009 it has helped my pain alittle but the dr.s are telling me i will have to live with chronic pain for the rest of my life and my dr. also told me there is cases of R.S.D. going away but it depends on how severe your R.S.D. is like mine does not have a chance but there is always hope god bless you......
