What Exactly is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a diagnosis for individuals who experience unexplained severe pain to injured parts of their bodies.
The symptoms of CRPS include:
- Discoloration of the injury site;
- Hypersensitivity to touch;
- Severe burning pain pathological changes in bone and skin;
- Excessive sweating; and
- tissue swelling.
CRPS has been diagnosed in such odd cases as minor sprains to more obvious traumas.
There is no exact test for CRPS. It must be made by a qualified physician who recognizes the myriad of symptoms. Though, objective tests can be utilized to determine whether you have CRPS. These tests include bone scans and MRI results that can help determine bone loss and changes in the bone matter.
Other tests utilized are simple examinations of the skin where skin color changes of deep purple and reds are present. Temperature changes in the injury site will also indicate possible signs of the disease.
How CRPS Develops
Many people who have developed CRPS share common traits especially when it comes to the extreme sensitivity to touch. In many instances, an individual’s extremities (e.g., arm, feet, and legs) appear to develop this condition most commonly in accident cases. Aggressive physical therapy and nerve medications are often utilized to help the disease from spreading and getting worse.
Significant Harm Associated with CRPS
CRPS can lead to a horrific disability. For unexplained reasons, the disease can travel to other body parts not originally affected, such as an injury to the foot moving to the ankle, then to a knee, and up to the hip. In many instances, an accident victim may wind up completely disabled as a result of CRPS.
This is why it is so important to retain skilled and aggressive legal counsel if you are diagnosed with CRPS. You could be looking at long-term medical expenses and lost income as a result and you should explore filing a personal injury lawsuit to seek financial restitution for your harms and losses.
