Do You Have CRPS or RSD? You May Be Entitled to Damages
Chicago Lawyers: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Complex regional pain syndrome is a type of chronic pain that sometimes occurs after a traumatic injury. Car accidents, gun shot wounds, falls, medical negligence and assaults can all cause an injury that leads to complex regional pain syndrome. CRPS can also be triggered by surgery, infection, stroke or heart attack. Even minor traumas can cause CRPS.

Complex regional pain syndrome cannot be diagnosed by an imaging test. It doesn't show up on an X-ray, MRI or CAT scan. No blood test will pinpoint the problem. However, the pain is acute and very real.
Unrelenting, Unbearable Pain
Described as a burning or aching pain, the symptoms of CRPS persist long after the initial injury has healed. Complex regional pain syndrome was once known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). No matter what it is called, the disorder causes debilitating and continuous pain, and swelling, inflammation and hypersensitivity of the affected body part. The pain can be unrelenting and unbearable.
A progressive disorder that gets worse over time, complex regional pain syndrome can leave sufferers unable to work and earn a living.
