Are You Suffering From Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy?
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) are two different terms for one excruciating condition. Marked by intense and chronic pain, this condition is believed to be a disorder of the sympathetic nervous system.
Other names for this condition include:
- Reflex neurovascular dystrophy
- Sudeck’s atrophy
- Causalgia syndrome (Major)
Chronic regional pain syndrome is most often associated with surgical trauma, infection, nerve damage, radiation therapy and other causes. If you recently developed this condition after undergoing medical treatment or being injured in an automobile accident, it is worthwhile speaking to an experienced lawyer to learn if medical malpractice or another form of negligence may be a factor in your case.
At the law firm of Cronin & Maxwell, PL, our Jacksonville RSD attorneys have more than 20 years of experience representing injured civilians and military personnel throughout northeast Florida. We represent clients who have developed this condition in many different ways, from auto accidents and truck accidents to surgical procedures. We even handled one case where an individual developed CRPS/RSD from a simple needle stick during a routine blood draw.
Signs And Symptoms Of RSD/CRPS
Symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome or reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome may include:
- Continuous and intense pain in a finger, palm, arm, shoulder, knee, hip or leg
- Inflamed and swollen skin directly over the affected area of the body
- Extreme sensitivity to temperature and touch in that area
- Excessive sweating and warmth in that area
