What is CRPS?
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition, typically characterised within the affected area by intense burning pain, increased skin sensitivity, changes in skin colour and temperature and abnormal nail and hair growth. The areas affected are most often the arms, hands, legs and feet.
This is a chronic pain disorder that is typically limited to certain regions of the body, most often the limbs.
What are the symptoms?
CRPS’s symptoms include:
- A deep and painful burning sensation
- Muscle wasting
- Changes in skin colour
- Sensitive skin
- Changes in temperature
- Inability to move or touch affected area without severe pain
- Unusual growth of the hair and nails
Types of CRPS
The two types of CRPS are:
- Type 1: where there has been no nerve damage
- Type 2: where there has been nerve damage
CRPS usually arises after substantial trauma to a limb in an amputation, crush injury or fracture, but it can also arise after traumas such as infections, surgery and even mildly sprained ankles. It is also likely that emotional stress plays a large part in its occurrence.
Although CRPS may arise through no fault of another party, it may develop when a person suffers physical trauma due to another party’s negligence, subsequent to which they develop CRPS
