Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

HI, :wave:

My name is Monika and I am new to the boards. I'm a 28 year old mother of 2 boys, one is 11 years old and the other is 20 months old. I've had RSD for over 2 years now; it was caused by a major car accident. I am currently on Morphine, Prozac, Keppra, clonipin, & skelaxin.

A couple of weeks ago I had the scs trial for 4 days and it worked well. I had great coverage and received about a 40% decrease in my pain which was wonderful to me. The only problem I had was excessive Hydrosis. Now I know that people with RSD tend to have increased sweating but it seemed to me as if the scs just exacerbated the problem. I would wake up at night with my bed sheets completely soaked and several times throughout the day I would soak my clothes. I asked my Dr. and the Medtronic Rep. about this both neither of them have heard of anyone else with this problem.

If your in the medical field such as I am, does it not make sense that the scs could make the sweating worse? I mean, you are stimulating the nerves and therefore that could lead to exacerbation of the hydrosis.

If you, your spouse or any one you know of has had this happen to them after having a scs please, please write and let me know. Also if you could please include the treatment for it if any. :confused:

Thank You,
May each of your days be better than the last,
