I'd do a victory dance if I didn't have this walker...

I finally had a victory, one which is hard one and comes in a sea of pain and despair of ever feeling better. I raised my left foot one degree in biofeedback. It's a first and I'm proud of myself. When something like this happens, I celebrate it as much as possible. I know how hard I worked for it and I know that it isn't always even possible for people with RSDS/CRPS. So I decided to share the celebration with everyone.

What does this mean? It means that if I keep practicing, I may be able to get the blood to flow better in my bad leg. This may or may not help with pain, but it does show that I am slowly learning to get control of my sympathetic nervous system. That's a key part of RSDS/CRPS because it's the fight or flight part of your nervous system. Anyway, I just wanted to share the excitement!
