Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also commonly referred to as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a chronic progressive disease that is thought to be brought on following a traumatic injury. Victims of this tragic disease often report a feeling of intense burning or pain in either an arm or a leg. Unlike typical injuries after an accident which heal (for the most part) and get better with time, CRPS / RSD only gets worse and more severe. If you are currently experiencing CRPS / RSD after you have been in an accident, speak with an experienced San Diego personal injury attorney handling Complex Regional Pain Syndrome claims.

While the specific nature of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is not completely understood, it is widely believed in the medical community to be caused by a severe or traumatic injury.
Symptoms of CRPS / RSD include:
- Intense, chronic pain
- Burning sensation that radiates from the initial injury
- Pain that “shoots” or extends from the point of injury
- Swelling and excessive sweating
- Abnormally high localized skin temperature (may fluctuate)
- Skin discoloration
- Muscle spasms
- Join stiffness resulting in reduced mobility
Most doctors agree that CRPS / RSD develops after an accident or injury. Experts in the medical field believe that if extensive nerve damage occurs to a specific limb or area of a limb, then CRPS / RSD may develop. Pain that people experience from this disease gets worse over time, not better. It should also be noted that CRPS / RSD generally only affects one limb, an arm or a leg. The pain associated with CRPS / RSD usually starts in a small localized area but then eventually spreads to the entire limb, leaving the victim debilitated and in incredible pain.
