Chronic Regional Pain

Chronic regional pain syndrome is a rare and mysterious condition that causes continuous and severe pain to those who suffer from it. In many cases, the condition develops after an individual has experienced a sudden injury, traumatic event, heart attack or stroke.

Medical professionals are not entirely sure what causes chronic regional pain syndrome, but those who suffer from it can substantiate the claims that it causes disruptive and life-altering pain.

There are treatments available, and they are most effective if the condition is diagnosed early and treatment begins as soon as possible.

Things To Look For When Diagnosing Chronic Pain Syndrome

Some of the most common symptoms of chronic regional pain syndrome include:

  • Severe throbbing and pain in the limbs and hands
  • Swelling in the affected area
  • Sensitivity and pain to the touch
  • Changes in skin color, temperature and textures, as well as hair and nails
  • Muscle pain, spasms and atrophy
  • Pain and stiffness in joints, including swelling
  • Decrease in mobility and range of motion

If you are suffering from these symptoms, seek medical treatment and testing as soon as possible.

Because the condition is so painful, those who suffer from it are often unable to work for an extended period of time. If this occurs, the individual may have options for seeking Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income, depending on their specific situation or circumstances.
