No Connection, but...

Hi Friend,

No, there is no connection specifically between reflex sympathetic dystrophy and Vitamin D deficiency, but there IS a connection between pain in general and vitamin d deficiency. Please read my page on Vitamin D and Pain.

So, if she wants to, she can petition vitamin d researchers to do studies on RSD, try to get a congressional audience to see if the federal government will fund studies for this and suffer for the next 20 years to find out if there is a specific connection between the two.

OR she can simply go to my page on Vitamin D Therapy, follow the step by step directions and keep her vitamin d level in the optimal range for the next 6 months and find out if her pain is due to vitamin d deficiency.

I know what I'd do...
