Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. The RSD is a locally active condition and can be debilitating at times, though unlikely to be responsible for systemic abnormalities. Removal of brain stimulator should not cause the mentioned symptoms, while possibilities such as medication side effect, neurodegenerative conditions, strokes etc would need to be considered. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a neurologist and depending on the cause diagnosed, this can be managed appropriately.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
