Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic, painful neurological condition that usually affects your arms or legs. The key symptom of RSD/CRPS is continuous, intense pain out of proportion to the severity of the injury, which gets worse rather than better over time. People suffering from RSD/CRPS experience intense burning or aching pain along with swelling, skin discoloration, altered temperature, abnormal sweating and hypersensitivity in the affected area. Other symptoms include tremors, depression, anger or anxiety and problems sleeping. Every patient with RSD/CRPS has different signs and symptoms that can change from minute-to-minute or hour-to-hour.

Who Gets RSD/CRPS?
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, usually follows other musculoskeletal injuries related to motor vehicle accidents, infections, sports trauma, surgery or stress in one’s life at the time of injury. During that time, the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) that control these various processes are somehow changed as a result of an injury. Women are more likely to be affected by Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy than men. Although Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is most common in people between the ages of 40 and 60, it can occur at any age. If untreated, it can lead to significant morbidity and a loss of quality of life.
