Topical/Oral MMJ?: Rsd is a complex disorder which is really poorly understood. I know of no good alternative treatments which can be self-administered. As an osteopathic physician and pain doctor, i've seen quite a lot of rsd patients. Some respond to meds, some to osteopathic manipulation. Quite a few respond to topical or ingested medical marijuana. If legal in your state, it could prove quite helpful to try.

Hands on therapy: See my new view file. All pain issue start out as simple tissues disease. If no therapy is offer the pain will sear into the tissues and alter the harmony leading to complex pain disease. Like tn, crps etc. Myofascial therapy is with hand-on techniques or needle therapy. I like acupuncture. Hopefully you will be able to buy needles in the store.

Several treatments are available, including physical therapy, medications like topical cream, anti-seizure, infusion, injections ...
