Petition Tag - rsd reflex
I would like to make everyone aware of a disease/disorder that most people do not even know about unless they are around some one who has it or there are an educated medical professional. Many people are misdiagnosed and are going through terrible times because they might not even know what they have. It is reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and affects the sympathetic nervous system. It can make people unable to do anything and live every second of every day in terrible pain. The disease can be traced back to the civil war. I myself have had it since was age 11 and that was just when i was finally diagnosed over at Stanford University. Here in my area they wanted to cut my nerves leading to my leg. I ask everyone to do some research and spread the knowlege and get programs and support groups going.
