Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) are two names for a nervous system injury that causes chronic pain. CRPS and RSD typically develop after an injury, sometimes even a very small injury. The sympathetic nervous system (the part of our nervous system that controls involuntary movement, such as breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, etc) itself can be injured from even minor trauma and can cause very debilitating pain.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Symptoms:
Dramatic changes in temperature and color
Intense burning pain
Extreme skin sensitivity
A person with CRPS or RSD deserves to be seen by highly qualified doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers who understand the condition, who know how to treat it, and who care about the people who suffer from it.
