Do You Suffer From CRPS or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)?

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is characterized by a sharp chronic pain or burning in the arm or leg. Although no one really knows what causes it, CRPS most often occurs in the aftermath of a serious injury.

Symptoms for this condition include:

  • Intense and chronic pain
  • Swelling
  • Skin discoloration
  • Accelerated temperature
  • Abnormal sweating
  • Hypersensitivity

It can be caused by indirect or distinct nerve damage following severe trauma, such as in car and trucking accidents, industrial accidents and other worksite accidents, and well site accidents.

If you suspect you may have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, it is important to contact a trusted physician right away. He or she can document your symptoms and address your immediate medical needs.

It is also important you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome can severely limit mobility in your limb, and as a result, affect your ability to work or live your daily life. If the condition resulted from an accident caused by negligence, an attorney can help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
