Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder.

Symptoms associated with RSD and CRPS include:

  • Burning, continuous pain
  • Excessive sweating
  • Swelling
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch

There are two types of RSD and CRPS: Type one involves no nerve injury, and type two does involve nerve injury.

RSD/CRPS usually affects individuals between the ages of 40 and 60 and is three times more likely to occur in women that men.

Two possible causes of RSD/CRPS are direct injury of the nerve of infection in an arm or leg.

Currently, there is no known prevention for RSD/CRPS.
