Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and RA
Can you tell me what Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is and what are the symptoms? Are they similar to RA sympotoms?
This is a totally different case than RA. RSD is a disease of the nerve as a result of an injury to the nerve. It has symptoms of increase pain and sensitivity, changes in the skin and the bone.
