effets of RSD

mrrehab posted:
is it possible that RSD in the foot and ankle may also cause sudden and temporary loss of motor function in the foot alone so that one falls completely to the ground? Does anyone have literature or experience with this? Perhaps the symptoms are caused by other diagnoses/conditions?
thanks for any replies

Thanks for acknowledging the quesiton, Joy, and for the link.
I realize that the symptom that I described is not one that I typically find associated with RSD, although the "sudden give-way" motion appears in an affected foot/ankle. We'll keep searching. Thanks again.
