Comment : Sorry this is happening to you.

My BL was in January and it wasn't as bad as yours, but I did have to defend my pain, beg for pain meds (try your GP for emergency supply), and am still having to explain to people how I broke my leg falling on black ice. I cried pretty much every day for three months over what now seems to be nothing, but at the time seemed to be a huge deal. I highly recommend crying. I always felt better afterwards. Keep a calendar of your pain (1-10, as an RN you know what it means) and symptoms so you can see how much better you are each week. There are several people on this site who have and have had RSD and will have advice. Hang in there, check in here on both discussion and chat frequently, and know that you won't have to defend your pain here. Good luck!
