Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Hi Bryn...just read your post. David has chest pain like you describe, and problems with breathing. His pulse rate almost doubles, and at times his scalp sweats. Hw was checked out by the cardiologist who ruled out heart problems, and when he saw the Pain doc on Thursday, he said it was part of the big picture. This we took to mean RSD. He is going to have steroid injections in his chest wall, and has been offered a Stellate ganglian block. The pain is usually brought on by exertion...after a shower, bending to empty the dishwasher, and each time he has to rest. David has never had asthma, or anxiety, although the RSD can sometimes cause him to be agitated.

Hope this helps.
