In brief: RSD

Rsd is an old term for a condition now called complex regional pain syndrome .
This begins with some type of injury, often a minor one. There is a great deal of pain as well as swelling in the involved limb, sensitivity to even light touch and abnormalities in sweating of the affected extremity. The condition is poorly understood. The mainstay of treatment is aggressive physical therapy.
