What is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy?
Sometimes referred to as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a condition that results in chronic pain due to nerve damage. Contrary to what some people may believe, this is not a mental condition of the victim’s pain being “in their head,” but a very real physical ailment that is caused by injuries that affect the nerves.
RSD can be caused by an injury that directly affects the nerves (such as auto accidents or other blunt-force injuries) or can develop over time from other lingering injuries and physical conditions (such as carpal tunnel syndrome or severe arthritis).
Symptoms and effects of RSD can include:
Pain that starts out mild but grows more serious
Swelling, tenderness, or redness
Skin changes such as hardening or thickening
Bone deterioration (sometimes leading to osteoporosis)
Loss of motor function
These symptoms can begin in a localized area after an injury but spread to other areas of the body as time goes on. Increased pain or loss of mobility can result in significant disability. If you or a loved one have suffered an injury and subsequently developed RSD, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Your best option is to consult with an attorney regarding your case.
