When the nervous system misfires, RSD pain can be the result. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a syndrome that causes patients to suffer with chronic pain that may be moderate to extreme. Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best opportunity for relief. RSD is also commonly referred to as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). It will often begin after an injury or traumatic event, such as a sprain, fracture or surgery. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy pain symptoms include:
- Deep, aching, cold, or burning pain
- Pain in greater severity than would be expected from the injury
- Ongoing pain and swelling, even after an injury heals
- Ultra-sensitivity to touch and pain upon light contact in the affected area
Our firm has extensive expertise in the law practice area of RSD/CRPS. We understand that your severe pain could have been triggered by a minor injury or a major trauma – such as a broken bone from a motorcycle accident or a hospital error. We work diligently on behalf of RSD patients who’ve been injured due to the negligence of others.
