I was just reading an article on how RSD affect your lungs heart and your internal organs. For almost a year I have been dealing with what feels like galbadder pain. Test after test they say its fine. But after reading this article it seems that RSD can affect your internal organs. I just curious if the doctor might think that the lung function problems and the galbadder pain can be coming from the RSD. It just seems there is few doctors out there who even consider that RSD is real. OR possibly they just don't take the time to learn about it. I had to be hospitalized over the pain in my galbladder over night to get some meds that would work. The article says that her husband died of the RSD had got to his heart and it swelled and he died in his sleep. This all makes me curious if this is what is affecting my internal organs or if its just asthma. Does any body have any thoughts on this subject or has ever heard of such a thing happening?
Thank you so much for the information. Welcome although I'm so sorry you have RSD. You'll find so much support and comfort here. I've been reading on the site you gave us-thank you.
I've had this 15 years. full body and now internally entire pelvic region and afraid my lungs are involved. I have gasping for air at night and day. I
also had a negative heart test. passed out for an hour or an hour and half -low blood pressure. I'm going to see lung specialist next-have a good RSD Dr.
Will keep in touch . Yes, internal involvement happens. Do you have heat radiating off your skin where your gallbladder is? I do-entire pelvic region. Hot to the touch and red to color.
A website that is good is rsdrx.com go to puzzles list It is 146 questions and Dr. Hooshmands answers. He practiced 40 years. Now retired, but has another Dr. taking his patients-Florida Question 127 discusses internal organ involvment.
Let us know how you are doing. One of your new friends, loretta with big soft hugs
