Hi everyone, Thank you for letting me join your group. My name is Mary, (Mary1016), the major illnesses I suffer with is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/RSD, small fiber peripheral neuropathy diagnosed with biopsy two weeks ago. I was told the neuropathy was already severe and the thing to do now is get me to a neurologist that specializes in pain medicine. Couldn't get an appointment until November 4th and am having great difficulty waiting. I'm going for another ketamine treatment this Sunday October 2nd. I was told by Columbia University after a failed lidocaine infusion, to go back to the ketamine doctor even though it made me start peeing blood. I don't have a lot of information on sfn. I want to basically know how long somebody usually lives when the Polyneuropaypthy is severe already. When my doctor gave me the results he hugged me for a long few minutes and told me basically not to loose my faith in God and to promise I won't take my life. I made those promises but I need to know how much worse this can possibly get and how long do people usually have to suffer. Thank you for taking the time to read:-)
