How does one 'rule out' RSD? I have been tentatively diagnosed a couple of times with RSD, but since the pain is circular and comes and goes, I always seem to end up at the pain center when the pain is minimal. So they don't diagnose me with it. Does this sound reasonable? My other doctor is afraid to do surgery on me because he has seen the 'high pain' moments... I feel stuck in between two impasses....

I have an appointment with the pain clinic on this coming Monday. Do you have any advice on what questions to ask?

Thanks for your input!
