clemaire- Welcome to the group! As you can tell, we have some wonderful people here. Please, feel free to ask questions and share here. Pain is horrible and can be very debilitating. Sometimes, it can really help, to just have others that understand- no matter where the pain is. Here, you'll find- We're all here for each other.

You stated that you don't feel you have Fibro, as your joints don't hurt. Please know, Fibro is about muscles and tendons, not joints.

RSD is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Here's a little info about RSD:

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), RSD is "a chronic pain condition that is believed to be the result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems."

According to MedicineNet, RSD involves "irritation and abnormal excitation of nervous tissue, leading to abnormal impulses along nerves that affect blood vessels and skin."

No Clemaire I have never had any counceling on being raped or when my 1st husband died at 30, or for when I was a kid my mother told me she hated me. The only counceling I had was 1 time for my RSD only because you have to to have a spinal cord stimulator put in. If you want to know more about RSD there are alot of articles and conversations on here to help you. I would not know where to begin but if you have had back pain that long and they can't find anything you just might have RSD.
