Visiting a dentist can be a problem for CRPS sufferers.

My dentist follows a procedure to prevent flare ups of CRPS. He uses cream to deaden the area before injecting. Then uses a non adrenaline local. He also injects local again at the end of the treatment which is kept short. On my last visit he didn't do this as it was just a check up. Unfortunately I had a facial flare up as a result of handling and cleaning. In future , even for check ups we'll be following the procedure we know works to prevent a problem.

Agree, totally, Jeisea... more dentists need to understand that their actions can prove very painful for those of us with RSD. I just had a bad experience about a month ago with a dentist, cried the whole time I was there and for days afterwards from the pain it caused.

RSD Hope is a great resource that I visit on almost a daily basis.

I am going for a consult tomorrow,
Tues 6/23/09 for a molar extraction.

I'm looking for information I know I've read or heard before about preparations dentists can take to
help prevent triggering RSD.

are doing. I belong to an email support group, but I do miss the site you ran. Hello to Tumble. I
hope you see this and email me at Linda
