Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Hi, I have had 4 sympathetic nerve blocks the same as you. I too have RSD in my right foot and leg. My arms have been burning (like a sunburn feeling) for the past couple of months too. I'm not sure if that would be the start of RSD in my arms. Anyway, none of my sympathetic blocks worked. The most relief I got was 18 hours and a couple didn't work at all. Apparently, I'm too far into the disease that they don't work any more because my pain has now become independent. I am scheduled for a trial spinal cord stimulator on the 10th. If it works, I will have the permanent implant on the 17th. I'm a bit nervous. I seems like such an invasive treatment. I have also heard that if the sympathetic blocks didn't work for you then the stimulator wouldn't either. There a conflicted opinions here. I hope they are getting to your RSD early enough to jolt your nervous system back into rhythm, so to speak. Good Luck!
