Discussions that mention pamidronate

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) board


Michelle, yeah it seems like the boards are running slow.

I'm still waiting for advice on what to do, should I get the steroid injection or not? Came across this web site http://www.drmirkin.com/morehealth/g160.htm They state:

"Now we have a cure. A recent report from France shows that 86 percent of patients were cured by injecting a drug to strengthen bones, called pamidronate, into the veins. The pamidronate is injected one mg per Kg intravenously for two straight days or daily alindronate or calcitonin (3). A study from Italy shows that RSD can be cured with intravenous clodronate 300 mg daily for 10 consecutive days."

any thoughts on this?

Thanks!
