Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
What Is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
Complex regional pain syndrome is characterized as chronic pain, most often occurring in an extremity, which may be a result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous system. This dysfunction may be related to a prior injury. Other symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome include problems with normal motor or sensory functions.
Patients with this condition may experience pain disproportional to the original injury or tissue damage (if present). The symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome are usually perceived as being within one specific area of the body, but may radiate outward over time.
