Meet Kathy, who was recently a guest on “The Doctors” television program. Kathy has been suffering from RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) for 19 years.
It all began for Kathy in 1996, when she was working at a college. She was headed to the gym to exercise with her husband, and was walking barefoot with her sneakers in her hand, when the football player walking in front of her took a step backwards, causing her to injure her foot. It broke the skin a little but there were no broken bones. However after several weeks, the injury was not healing and was actually worse. “It felt like being stabbed with a hot poker, and then eventually progressed to spasms” Kathy said. Kathy suffered the pain on and off for 7 years, and then was diagnosed with RSD by Dr. Stephen Barkow, pain management specialist.
RSD is a chronic systemic disease, characterized by severe pain and swelling. “I’ve never seen a case like this in my entire career”, Dr. Travis Stark, E.R. physician, said. Acccording to Dr. Stark, Kathy’s RSD is in stage 4, which is a level of severity that most RSD patients never experience.
