Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome is chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. This condition generally develops after an injury, surgery, stroke, or heart attack. The pain is usually worse compared to the severity of the initial injury. Since this condition is uncommon, its cause is not clearly understood.
What Can Cause Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
Over time, the affected limb may appear cold and pale. Muscle spasms and tightening may also occur. Once these changes arise, the condition can be irreversible. Thus, treatment is most effective when the diagnosis is early, mainly because it gives patients a higher chance of experiencing improvement and sometimes complete remission.
Symptoms may change over time and differ from person to person. Pain, swelling, redness, noticeable changes in temperature, and hypersensitivity (especially cold and touch) usually appear first. Other symptoms include:
- Joint stiffness, swelling, and damage
- Muscles spasms, weakness, or loss of feeling
- Reduced ability to move the affected body part
