What is CRPS?

CRPS stands for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and  is sometimes called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy . (RSD(.  Unfortuntely, unless it is promptly and properly treated, it is a permanent, and painful injury.    Few doctors have ever treated it, and therefore, many fail to recognize it.  However, it is recognized by the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) as one of the worlds most complicated and painful injuries.  Neurologists and Pain Management Doctors are specialists who commonly treat the injury.

Common characteristics of CRPS:

  • CRPS can be caused by simple sprains, or broken bones
  • CRPS causes the nerves to send painful messages in an unbroken continuous circuit of pain that will not go away;
  • CRPS pain is unbearable, feeling like one’s extremities are on fire;
  • CRPS symptoms usually are caused by hypersenstivity. even a breeze or light touch is painful;
  • Symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrom include swelling and temperature differences;
  • Some doctors recommend that their patients be put into a coma to reset their nervous system;
  • CRPS almost always interferes with all acttivities and work that the person was formerly able to do.
  • Heavy medication and psychotherapy is required to deal with CRPS pain.
  • CRPS victims sometimes get relief from  spinal stimulators, but there is no guarantee
  • Most CRPS patients receive physical therapy, but many times this makes the problem worse, especially if the provider does not deal with CRPS;
  • CRPS patients commonly say they want to get the affected limbs cut off because the pain is so bad
  • Pain experts rate CRPS pain higher than even child birth and amputation injuries.
