Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, known as RSD, is a chronic neurological disease which affects millions of people around the world. This disease is also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS.

The Foundation was the first to publish a study demonstrating the. Causes. The cause of CRPS isn't completely understood. It's thought to be caused by an injury to or an abnormality of the peripheral and central nervous systems.

CRPS typically occurs as a result of a trauma or an injury. CRPS occurs in two types, with similar signs and symptoms, but different causes.

Type 1. Also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), this type occurs after an illness. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Related to/Also known as: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) Symptoms of CRPS: CRPS is a chronic pain disorder, which can occur after trivial injury, often involving soft tissue around joints.

The pain is extremely severe, and far outweighs that normally produced by tissue damage. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), which is sometimes called complex regional pain syndrome, is a rare condition that affects the sympathetic nervous system.

It is characterized by chronic, severe pain that generally affects the extremities. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Shoulder Hand Syndrome or Causalgia or Sudeck’s Dystrophy, it is a condition that is usually followed by any injury to hands or feet.

It involves an abnormal response of the nervous system. Increased symptoms can occur a long time after the injury. Because the cause of and cure for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is unknown, treatment centers on controlling pain and maintaining flexibility and mobility of the affected limbs.

Although it was clearly described well over years ago by Drs. Mitchell, Moorehouse and Keen, it remains very poorly understood and is often unrecognised. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), describes an array of painful conditions that are characterized by a continuing (spontaneous and/or evoked) regional pain that is seemingly disproportionate in time or degree to the usual course of any known trauma or other lty: Neurology, Pain Management.

There is no sure test for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), which used to be called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). Therefore, diagnosing CRPS is challenging and is made by excluding other conditions. Doctors and patients just have to watch the symptoms over time—the hallmarke of diagnosis is a thorough physical exam of signs and.

CRPS TYPE I (one), until recently, is what has always been known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, RSDS or classic RSD.

It can involve minor nerve injury. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also called complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I), is a painful nerve problem.

It often occurs in the hand or foot after getting hurt. If untreated, the pain and weakness that RSD may cause can limit use of the injured region. But treatment can help you get better.
