Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

RSD

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Attorney in Georgia

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD) is a term used to describe one form of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Both RSD and CRPS are chronic conditions characterized by severe burning pain, most often affecting one of the extremities (arms, legs, hands, or feet). There are often pathological changes in bone and skin, excessive sweating, tissue swelling and extreme sensitivity to touch, known as allodynia. RSD is a complicated condition and often difficult to diagnose. Unfortunately, it is often overlooked until it is too late for a good recovery. RSD often occurs in conjunction with another injury and affects the nerves, skin, muscles, blood vessels and bones at the same time.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Most Common Symptoms of RSD:

  • Severe burning pain
  • Increased skin sensitivity to touch
  • Changes in skin temperature: warmer or cooler compared to the opposite extremity
  • Changes in skin color: often blotchy, purple, pale or red
  • Changes in skin texture: shiny and thin, sometimes excessively sweaty
  • Changes in nail and hair growth patterns
  • Swelling and stiffness in affected joint
  • Motor disability, with decreased ability to move affected body part

If you have experienced any of these symptoms after being injured on the job, turn to Bruce Edwards. Bruce is a compassionate workers’ compensation lawyer who will fight for you to receive the intense treatment RSD requires.

Remember, it is a mistake to hire a far-away attorney who does not know, and is not familiar with the most important aspect of your case: who is your doctor? For 31 years, Bruce has worked with (and against, if necessary) virtually every orthopedic and neurosurgeon practicing from Macon to Valdosta, from Brunswick to Columbus. So you should not hire an attorney who is located far away, where they could not possibly have a relationship with your doctor. If you were hurt in South Georgia, you should retain a South Georgia attorney.
