Minnesota Complex Regional Pain Attorney

Reflex sympathetic dystrophy, commonly known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a medical condition resulting in intense and chronic pain in part of the body.  Those affected by complex regional pain syndrome have suffered an injury to the nerve from a serious accident.

Complex Regional Pain Lawsuits

While usually felt in the arms or legs after nerve damage, complex regional pain syndrome can cause problems to other parts of the body, including muscles, blood vessels, bones and skin.  Minor and serious injury to the nerve can cause CRPS, including:

  • Car or truck accidents
  • Injuries from electrical shock
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Injuries in the workplace
  • Animal attacks
  • Instances of premise liability

Complex Regional Pain Symptoms

A dull ache or intense burning is the main symptom of CRPS, but other associated symptoms can appear, including:

  • Constant or chronic pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Elevated pain
  • Muscle stiffness and weakness
  • Pain moving throughout the entire body
  • Blotchy purple or red skin

Living with CRPS

Your life can change entirely when you suffer from complex regional pain syndrome.  Not only can it limit your mobility, but it can force you to stop working, prohibit you from socializing with friends and it can even be difficult to get out of bed at times.  Those living with CRPS can also be at risk of suffering from depression.

Even though CRPS has no cure, treatments are available including surgery, injections, spinal cord stimulators and therapy.
