POTS, Fibromyalgia, RSD, and CRPS

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, RSD and CRPS all share a common feature of an abnormally behaving autonomic nervous system.  In that regard all of these conditions can be classified as a form of Dysautonomia.  With dysautonomias the autonomic portion of the nervous system (that part that controls body functions such as skin temperature, sweating, pupil dilatation, heart rate, breathing and other independent functions) does not function just right.  Depending on how much the system is not working right a whole host of symptoms can arise.  Learn more about conditions related to dysautonomia on piedmontpmr.com.

RSD/CRPS and Quality of Life

Being told you or a loved one has RSD/CRPS can be emotionally taxing to say the least.   While there is plenty of reason for concern many people get overly frightened and that only makes things worse.  No one is in the best frame of mind to make decisions about their health care, or anything else for that matter, when they are scared.  Plus activating the flight or fright system really does worsen this condition.   At Piedmont Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, PA we try to focus on treating the source of your RSD/CRPS while also quieting down the sympathetic system.  In addition to blocks, medications, therapy and the like focusing on what actions can be taken to improve quality of life can have a major impact.   Learn more about cognitive approaches by visiting the Challenge and Choice and Education links on piedmontpmr.com.
