Re: Going for Bone Scan Results
well, surprise, surprise, the bone scan did not show evidence of RSD.
My ortho still fully believes this is what I have though. I asked about the diagnostic ability of the bone scan in RSD and he said that it is just about building a case. He is referring me to a neurologist, not for an emg or any tests, but just for an evaluation and still wants me in the pain clinic STAT for a nerve block. There is such a long waiting list for this clinic but he said they are going to make a call and get me bumped up it is that urgent.
He kept me out of work because he said I am not functional at this level of pain. He said mechanically I can do the work, and he would have to say that if they asked him, but he believes that until the pain is under "control" I cannot function at work of any kind.
