Specializes in Neurology

RSD is a diagnosis of exclusion, not enough symptoms are available to point towards a specific issue but b/l RSD is unusual and more common to get compression neuropathies vs critical illness polyneuropathy vs antibiotic related polyneuropathy. you need to see a neurologist for a thorough intake, exam, labs, emg/ncs to get to the right diagnosis so you can be treated appropriately.
