Hi Babee

It is good to make sure the diagnosis is right, but if it is RSD, then you really need to act quickly and these blocks could be a good idea. RSD doesn't always show up on scans, its diagnosed by a physical examination and by the dr asking questions about your symptoms etc.

I understand you want to be sure you're getting the right diagnosis, and aren't happy with that dr. There are plenty of doctors out there and not all of them know a lot about rsd, so you need to find one that you are confident that they know how to treat you. No one wants to have RSD so I can understand your hesitation! I would just advise that you see your ortho doc asap, because if it is rsd, the first 6 months are crucial in keeping the rsd at bay.

Good luck with it!

But thats the thing....I've had this pain since April 5th. The PM doc says although the bone scan says suggestive RSD that hes not so sure because my foot is not discolored....doesnt sweat...and isnt sensitive to touch. Oh well...time will tell. I will post how my appointment with my ortho goes on tuesday.

Thanks so much for your response :)
