i am currently dealing with rsd as a result of ankle surgery. i have pain and tingling in my foot, primarily my toes. i have constant numbness, tingling, and sharp pain especially at night. there are some nights i dont have alot of pain but then are are some where i am crying. my pm dr suggested a spinal cord stimulator since the nerve blocks that i have gotten (2) have not helped. the thought of having this in my body terrifies me. can anyone offer some advise on how it has worked for you and would you do it again?

    I just had the nevro implanted yesterday 7/13/2016. What I can say so far ( have cold crps in my left foot, and spreading up my calf and thigh with spasms and horrible cramps) is that last night the cramping went away as well as spasms and bone chilling cold that feels like frostbite in my foot, although to touch foot  is still cold.  I will say this, the trial stimultor surgery is much more painful in the back then they tell you!   I will have more to post tonight and in the upcoming days as us RSD and CRPS people need to be informed and supportive.
