What is reflex sympathetic dystrophy?
« on: 03/09/2011 10:11:06 »
A caller the radio show recently described a persistent pain in her arm that began after a fractured wrist had healed. The description she gave was of a condition called Sudeck's atrophy or reflex sympathetic dystrophy.

Has anyone else any experiences of this condition?
