Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and TMS Success Stories

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) referenced in TMS Books

This malady is characterized by pain, swelling, tight and shiny skin and bone abnormalities that can be seen on X ray. It may involve one or more limbs and tends to be extremely disabling. The symptoms and physical findings on examination are said to be caused by excessive discharge of sympathetic nerves resulting in widespread reduction in blood flow and oxygen deprivation. It is similar to what happens with TMS but is more severe and involves muscles, nerves, tendons, skin and bone.
