Question: I have RSD, 12 years of all types of treatments by pain mgmt. Last XXXXXXX I had my pump replaced and now only run Prialt. Three weeks ago the Prialt was backed down to a level from 8 months ago due to a barrage of nasty side affects. Within one week all the side affects subsided, Except for low blood pressure of 80s over 50s. This has been a 3 month issue. Do you feel that there may be a connection? Or, are there any things that I can do to get my BP back to my low norms of around 110 over 80?
Thank you, in advance. XXXXXXX YYYY@YYYY
