Has confined me to house. Nothing relieves pain; am awaiting apptmt with neurologist who understands RSD. This is my 2nd episode; 1st one after fracture of wrist 2005. Anyone have experience with RSD in breast?

Hi, yes i have crps (pmps)...had bilat mast w/recon a year ago. Had lots of burning/sensitivity in chest/implant area. Neurontin and lyrica are the first line drugs for this. See a pain management doctor... Also lidoderm patches help too...helpful for wearing clothes. I'm not totally better yet, but have improved over time. Good luck to you!:)
