Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)  and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)  can lead to devastating consequences and you have likely never heard of it.  As  California Personal Injury Attorneys we have dealt with thousands of injured people and in every case the outcome of an injury improves with early treatment.  One of the biggest challenges is that with CRPS/RSD is that you and your doctor may not even know you have it

             Typically with CRPS/RSD there is a specific event that will trigger the onset.  That event may even seem trivial at the time and something as slight as a sprain or as significant as a fracture or a stroke can trigger the cycle of events that lead to CRPS/RSD.

             When we see someone with CRPS/RSD they have typically been in pain for an extended period of time and they experience that pain increasing without a clear cause.  Frequently, they have seen a Doctor who may or may not prescribe pain meds and even these pain meds don’t effectively diminish the symptoms or pain level.  For this person, the pain is getting worse, they don’t understand why and they have no idea what to do about it.  In fact this can become so advanced in such a short period of time that their life becomes all about coping and they can do little else.

             The affected person may experience a limited range of motion, abnormal hair or nail growth, weakness, deep pain, achiness, burning sensations, skin sensitivity all the way to paralysis.  The actual diagnosis is confirmed with clinical findings and radiographic evidence.   Treatment is vital early in the course of this syndrome and the results are closely tied to when the individual seeks treatment.
