Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy - RSD

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or RSD, is a neurological disorder that causes millions of people to suffer a deep burning sensation in the muscles, skin, bones, and joints. The cause often baffles doctors and scientists, but most people that suffer from RSD have had pervious immobilizations, heart attacks, sprains, head injuries, or sports injuries that ended with broken bones.

The main symptoms of RSD differ from individual to individual. In addition to the burning in the joints, limbs and extremities, many victims of this sometimes debilitating disease often develop sensitivity to touch, excessive sweating, and severe swelling. Most perplexing to doctors and victims alike, the symptoms of RSD do not always match with complete consistency the injuries that caused them. A minor injury may cause incredibly intense pain, although this degree can shift from constant to intermittent.

Reflex Sympathetic Disorder can strike anyone at any age, from the elderly to children. Most of the victims are between the ages of 40 and 60, for the people at these ages are the most likely to sustain injuries that can lead to RSD. Men and women are equally susceptible to this condition, and if the disease is caught in the earliest stages medical science can usually find a way to battle the symptoms in order to allow the victim to live a healthy and productive life.

There are three stages of RSD. Stage 1 causes intense and swelling in the joints and extremities. Stage 2 results in symptoms that expand to include stiffness, hair loss, dry hands, and more intense pain. Stage 3 causes ever increasing pain, irreversible tissue damage, and thinning of skin tissues.

Because there is so little understanding of the physiology of RSD, and indeed little consensus of what exactly constitutes this condition, doctors are often at a complete loss to attempt to treat it. The standard treatments for Reflect Sympathetic Disorder include topical analgesics, spinal cord stimulation, antidepressants, and physical therapy. The prestigious National Institute of Health is currently working hard to find a universal treatment for RSD, but as of yet there is no standard guidebook for doctors to follow to help victims of this condition.
