I have Rsd for 21/2 years. Started as a hyperextension tendinitis of my wrist. I have had multiple Stellate blocks which work great for me. I use a TENS unit. Wear a patch that is usually used for High blood pressure but alleviates about 80-85% of the pain. I very very rarely take a narcotic and even then I break it in half. I'm here if you have more questions. 2 heads are better than one and remember--you aren't alone. Email anytime.
