Sympathetically Independent Pain

SIP/ Sympathetically Independent Pain Some patients will present with the classic symptoms of RSD; however, sympathetic blockade does not take away their pain. This may be due in part to a disease process that we don’t understand, or it may be that these patients have progressed so far along in their disease that the disease has become centrally maintained only (there are now changes in the nerve cells in the spinal cord), and sympathetic blocks have little or no effect on it whatsoever. Often SIP is seen later in the development or progression of RSD patients.
