Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

Did they help?? I just saw my doctor today & the bone scan definitely showed RSD... He's trying to get a lumbar sympathetic block approved thru workman's comp... I've had the symptoms of RSD for over 7 months,isn't it a bit too late to try the blocks??
The nerve blocks are also used to determine if the source of the pain is sympathetically maintained or sympthetically independent. Pain relief following a nerve block is evidense of maintained pain. If thats the case they may do additinal nerve blocks.. The independent is associated with the central nervous system which may result in more involvement of the organs and less response to treatment.. Either way give it a try.. It helps the drs determine what course of treatment to give you...
Good luck..
