Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Complex regional pain syndrome is a painful (and somewhat mysterious) way to live. Usually affecting the arms or legs, this syndrome produces a chronic pain that can, at times, be severe. About 90 percent of victims have Type 1 (also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), which affects them after an illness or injury that is not directly related to the area experiencing pain. The rest of victims have Type 2 (used to be Causalgia), which affects them after an injury directly to the area experiencing pain.
