When patients experience CRPS swelling, they are dealing with a common symptom of this chronic condition. The leg, foot, hand or arm that has been previously traumatized may continue swelling even after healing. Inflammation and pain are two symptoms seen in the early stages of CRPS. Physicians may compare the swelling in an affected limb to the normal appearance of the other limb when confirming a diagnosis of the syndrome. Edema in the body area is considered abnormal, as are the skin, hair growth and nail changes that occur. Like the pain, swelling may improve, only to show up again later. Dysfunctional nerves are believed to be one reason for symptoms appearing in the affected area. Your physician may recommend applying cold to help with the swelling from CRPS. At GorenLaw, we understand the complications that occur with a chronic condition. That’s why our accident and medical malpractice attorneys are ready to work on your behalf if your CRPS was the result of negligence.
Swelling from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Neurogenic inflammation may be the term medical professionals use to describe the swelling from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. This type of swelling differs from the usual inflammation seen during recovery from a surgery, trauma or injury. The swelling may be accompanied by a symptom known as allodynia, which is essentially feeling intense pain after gentle contact, such as water dripping on skin.
