The ones that do are extremely strict and place you on low dose long acting meds. Again, this is just my experience, others may have had different PM dr do different things. I thought I recalled you had a bone scan done to diagnose your RSD?
I haven't gotten my bone scan yet, I'm assuming they do that at the PM dr. My OS is pretty sure of RSD that's why I'm being referred.
Right ankle lateral ankle stabilization with ankle arthroscopy and debridement, curettage and microfracture of the lateral talar dome lesion. Possible RSD of right ankle
Anxiety and depression
