What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

Complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS) is a kind of chronic pain condition. CRPS is normally triggered by an injury of some kind. However, the pain which you will undergo after the injury has resolved itself is much more severe and long-lasting than should be expected. Unfortunately, this illness is poorly understood and is still in the phase of being researched.

The pain resulting from this chronic syndrome is usually confined to one limb, or the area of the initial injury. However, there are some cases where the pain has spread across the body. The pain associated with this chronic condition is agonising and can prevent you from working and socialising. As such, CRPS can have a major impact on your daily life.

The affected areas can become swollen, stiff and sensitive. It is also common for these injuries to be associated with fluctuations in colour and temperature, which can be extremely uncomfortable. Sometimes this illness will simply go away on its own, but there are many cases where the syndrome’s symptoms are permanent.
