What are the Most Common Signs & Symptoms of Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome?

| Dec 15, 2021 | Personal Injury

At Martinez & Schill, LLP, our personal injury attorneys in San Diego know that there is no shortage of personal injury accidents that can lead to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS. The pain can be intense and is typically amplified beyond what an injury could expect from a fracture or soft tissue damage.

We also know, when our California clients are suffering from CRPS, their lives are placed on hold for an extended amount of time while they work towards varying medical solutions that provide relief.

Our dedicated Riverside personal injury lawyers can help pursue the resources you need from the negligent party that caused your injuries, so you can focus on a full recovery.

What are the Most Common Symptoms are Associated with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

Believed to be a dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems, CRPS is considered an overreaction to pain signals that the nervous system cannot shut off.

Signs and symptoms of CRPS include:

  • Extreme sensitivity to pain caused by the slightest touch
  • Continuous pain that gets worse over time
  • Burning pain or a squeezing feeling in the affected limb
  • Pain that is out of proportion to the severity of your injury
  • Pain that spreads to extended parts of the injury source, including extremities or alternate extremities
  • Decreased range of motion or the complete loss of function
  • Changes in skin temperature, color, or texture, including swelling

Symptoms of CRPS typically start within four to six weeks after the injury occurs and can continue for months, years, or even permanently.

If your day-to-day activities and overall quality of life have been compromised by an injury and resulting CRPS, we can help you hold the negligent party liable for your overall financial recovery needs, so you can get your life back.
