Woman W/ Rsd Always Had Scaly Skin on Hands
Ted, I've searched EarthClinic but found no explanation or "cure" for my hands. Since childhood they've been thin, bony and the skin resembles chicken feet. Twelve years ago, I developed RSD - aka CRPS - and they've gotten worse. They don't itch or bleed, just look old, bony, scaly - now red and swollen as well as achy! I hoped you might know why they always looked so strange, and might have an idea for how to fix them.
I'm female, 60 years old, and also have asthma/allergies, RSD, and may have Fibromyalgia. I began following an anti-inflammation eating plan which helped my allergies tremendously, and the chronic pain eased up a bit. I'm exhausted most of the time, but cannot tolerate any medicines beyond an occasional pain med, (I hate the side effects - they make me feel poisoned) and try to just "live with" some pain.
Do you have any suggestions for my hands and pain? Thank you for your attention and time.
