Complex Regional Pain Syndrome effects more than two-hundred thousand people in this country per year according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders. This chronic pain syndrome is still not fully understood, but usually manifests following a surgery, injury, or illness. The medical community is yet to provide an exact cause for this condition. Some theories indicate that is the result of the peripheral nervous systems suffering from a dysfunction. What’s important to understand about CRPS is that the injured party suffers from lingering, severe pain that far exceeds the threshold for the original injury that occurred. This can have a significant impact on one’s ability to function in their daily lives, and while treatment is possible, there is no guaranteed cure for this disorder.
There are many different symptoms that indicate you might be suffering from CRPS. The pain associated with this disorder is normally characterized as burning, aching, and deep, and also results in a heightened sensitivity to pain stimuli. Joint pain and stiffness, muscle spasms, and skin changes are all commonly reported with CRPS. If you experience any of these severe symptoms long after your initial injury or illness, it is possible that you are experiencing Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
If you feel that you are potentially suffering from this debilitating syndrome, it’s important to consider consulting with a personal injury lawyer who can help you obtain the proper compensation you deserve. If this injury was result of negligence on the part of another party, an auto-accident, or even medical malpractice, you may be able to pursue damages for the effect CRPS has had on your life. This type of compensation can include pain and suffering, loss of employment, and costly medical bills resulting from continued treatment for the condition. It’s important to understand that building this type of case is very difficult, and that the vast majority of cases that go to trial end unfavorably for the plaintiff. Having the proper resources to build a strong case is key, and this is why consulting with an established legal firm is in your best interest.
