Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

I have heard that open wounds or other accidents can cause the rsd to relocate or have symptoms in those new areas. I'm not sure but I would be asking my doctor the likely-hood of that happening.
I've also read that people with autoimmune problems can have flare ups more with rsd because their bodies are trying to fight off so many different things that something has to be put on the back burner so to speak.
I wish I could be more help. Sounds like your friend could really use a break from her body attacking her like this. I'd ask about the blocks. I have heard of the same thing in regards to it helping not spread when doing a surgery. I wish your friend all the luck in the world. Hopefully if she does go through with the surgery that it doesn't create more problems with the rsd. I guess she has to out way which would be worse for her. Tough choice to have to make.
Has her doctors said anything about what could happen with the rsd? Does she see a rsd specialist. Maybe there is something they could do to prevent it if she has to have the surgery.
I really wish I could be more help.
Take care and stay warm,
