I Know Whats Wrong With Brett Farve


Recommended Posts

It was sad to see him on the sidelines last night. Just. weird.

 

I'm a huge Viking fan born and bred, but, I've always been a Brett Favre fan. It's sad to see him go out like this.

 

Yeah, he should've just stayed out when he retired from the Packers. I suppose it is sad that his streak was ended (and I do hope it's nothing permanent), but I lost a lot of respect for him when he left the messages for the Jets reporter. Before that I was just bitter that he retired and unretired and ended up with other teams (and the Vikings, nonetheless :shudder: ).

 

(Should I mention I'm a Packer fan?)

Holy cr@p, Imp! I think my dh may have that. He had an accident in Sept that severed his ulnar nerve. I just looked up the symptoms and he has most of the symptoms of the acute stage. Tell me what I need to know.

There's nothing good to know. :( Dx is very hard to get, visible symptoms come and go. No cure. My pain specialist has a 'best' outcome of 30% reduction in pain.

I've heard that it can be cured if caught early enough but once it is chronic there is no cure.

Can you direct me to that info?

 

RSD on Foxnews.com

 

It is highly manageable if caught early, but that rarely happens, Sultan said. RSD patients will typically see five doctors before getting an accurate diagnosis because there is still so much that isn’t known about the condition. And on top of all that — many doctors don’t recognize RSD because they haven’t seen it.

hmmm... that doesn't say cured but is manageable when caught early. I have heard that the key is to catch it early but I just don't remember where else I read that! Probably the NYT... I'll check there for you. :)

I was caught phenominally early. Yet I'm the worst case my specialist has seen for being non responsive to treatment.

 

Whats true for 10 ppl is false for the next 30. That's the issue with RSD. Its neurological, and they know diddly about the nervous system really.

 

There is no cure for RSD. The best outcome is some sort of remission, reduction of pain...but once you have it, you have it. There's no cure.

Thanks so much. I talked to dh last night about it and he put an email into his doctor.
