What is CRPS?
Known as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome, this condition is estimated to affect around 200,000 people in the United States every year. And yet, research on the subject is somewhat limited and some medical professionals actually discount it as a form of hypochondria.
Symptoms and Treatments for CRPS
Although we all know what pain feels like, it can be incredibly difficult to describe a specific type or source of pain to another person. Perhaps this paradoxical vagueness is what makes it troublesome for people suffering from RSD or CRPS to get their physician to recognize their condition as a real, ongoing problem.
People with CRPS often describe symptoms similar to or including:
- Burning sensation
- High sensitivity to touch
- Change in wound color
- Muscle or bone mass loss
- Disability of joint or extremity
- Near-predictable cycle of pain
- Hair loss at the area
- Emotional distress
We Work Tirelessly to Seek Justice on Your Behalf
What frustrates our legal team is hearing that people are not getting the treatment they need because such treatment does exist. Whether medical professionals want to accept your CRPS as real or not, there are options available that could help you find both immediate and long-term relief. The downside is that many of these treatments are extensive and expensive. To protect yourself and your finances from high costs, you may have to hold the person who caused your injury accountable through litigation.
Treatments that may help you with CRPS include:
- Prescription medication regimens
- Temperature therapy and rehabilitation
- Physical therapy sessions
- Neurology diagnoses and treatments
