Quote: "One attorney told me his client contracted RSD from acupuncture." I am not trying to make anybody stay away from acupuncture if this helps with their RSD symptoms, but I think I will stay away from acupuncture. If an attorney's client could get RSD from acupuncture, it could very well have been venipuncture RSD. Acupuncture uses needles, so I think this patient's RSD could very well be venipuncture RSD. Thank you for letting me know about it, so I can make the decision not to have acupuncture. Maybe acupressure will be better and less harmful for me. Once again, I am not saying people who were helped by acupuncture should not have it because of fear it might cause venipuncture RSD.
