Has the Serious Pain of RSD Put You Out of Work?

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a medical condition that results in chronic pain and inflammation of joints, often for many years following an injury or surgery. Medical researchers are still unclear about the exact causes of the continued pain, and there are some cases that have no documented injury or damage to the nerves affected.

The International Association for the Study of Pain classifies CRPS into two primary categories:

  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD): Which results in chronic pain, but does not necessarily show signs of physical damage to the nerves
  • Causalgia: Results in severe pain, brought on by obvious damage and lesions to the nerves

I am attorney Pamela Levine. If you are unable to work because of RSD or other chronic pain syndromes, Levine Law, LLC, is ready to help you fight for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income system. I have been providing compassionate, responsive legal representation for people seeking Social Security Disability for two decades. I understand the issues and know how to prepare the evidence the Social Security Administration expects to see.

"In either types of CRPS, the pain may or may not be restricted to the immediate region of the injury. Making sure the Administration understands the connection to an injury or nerve damage is a critical part of filing a successful claim. That's the kind of experience I bring to every claim." — Pamela Levine
