In addition to chronic pain, RSD swelling is another symptom that patients must face. Abnormal swelling is commonly seen in the affected area that has been previously injured or traumatized, whether that is a hand, knee, shoulder or foot. Swelling from RSD differd from the normal swelling that comes after an injury, and it does not improve as the injury heals. Inflammation is just one of the abnormalities that appear in response to the syndrome. Swelling may be accompanied by stiffness, as well as skin warmth and redness. Patients may also be highly sensitive to contact that does not usually produce discomfort, such as a light touch. Soft tissue swelling is seen in early stage of RSD. It may come and go or worsen as the condition progresses. An overactive sympathetic nervous system is the explanation often given for the inflammation and the other symptoms within the affected area. If your RSD injury swelling is the result of an accident or negligence, our Michigan personal injury attorney may be able to seek compensation on your behalf.
Abnormal Swelling from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome
When patients need to reduce the pain and swelling from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, early treatment appears to be beneficial. With no cure for RSD, the goal of treatment is symptom improvement and disability prevention. Physical therapy and pain management are central to treatment, but patients may also seek out specialists to address specific symptoms, such as for their Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome swelling and skin changes. The chronic condition is often misunderstood, but our lawyers have a valuable awareness of RSD. Please contact us if you’re suffering from pain, edema, or other RSDS symptoms.
