Lots of info: Yes, there is a lot of symptom relief treatment ideas that you can try. Unfortunately there is no cure, but even an improvement is worthwhile. Here are two sites to read: http://lymphedemapeople.com/thesite/edema_and_reflex_sympathetic_dystrophy.htm and http://www.medicinenet.com/reflex_sympathetic_dystrophy_syndrome/article.htm I wish you well.
