RSD

Posted by Rachel W. on 7/30/02 at 13:13 (091003)

Is Repeatative Stress Disorder and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy the same thing?

I wondered as they both have the same initials.

No - one is repetitive stress injury (RSI)

one is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

two very different things

O.K. Thanks Wendyn. It's just that when I looked up RSD on the search engine, the heel pain book mentioned RSD but said that it was repeatative stress disorder, so I got a bit confused.

Scott, what's up with this?

Do you have RSD defined like this in the book?
