RSD/CRPS - What Is It?

Here is a superficial explanation of my daughter's disease, RSD or CRPS.  The video below this one describes a little of what having RSD actually feels like.  It does not express it as severly as it actually is.  I was Skyping with my daughter (who, G-d willing I will see in two and a half weeks), when she suddenly had a flare-up.  I can't describe what happened--how her face suddenly contorted as she tried to cope with the pain coursing through her leg.  And I was watching her, sobbing, 7,000 miles away, incapable of doing anything. 

Thank G-d her brother was there.  He tried to help her, bringing her a cool compress for her forehead, and standing by her side, speaking soothingly to her.  She was in such pain, she was not aware that her mother was crying...I need strength to be able to help her, and appear strong.  How will I do that?

My prayers to the Heavens for a complete and speedy healing. I wish there were more words of healing and comfort I could offer.
