Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic pain condition. This condition typically occurs as a result of surgery, infection, trauma, or injury to the nerves. These forms of physical trauma can cause major changes in your body's sympathetic pain system, which can cause you severe and debilitating pain.
If you have been diagnosed with this condition or believe that you have developed it, our team at Pain Medicine Group can help. We specialize in the field of Fort Myers pain management, especially for those conditions which do not have a "cure."
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy sends painful signals through the nervous system to cause you unnecessary pain. Although there is not one known cause of this condition, we are very familiar with the treatments which can bring you relief. We begin with a professional diagnosis of your symptoms to determine the most effective treatment plan for your symptoms. Our Fort Myers pain management team works to provide you with lasting relief and manage the amount of pain you are in without surgery or a reliance on medication.
The skin over the affected area of the body may also be extremely sensitive to touch and to hot or cold temperatures.
Suffering from chronic pain can be overwhelming and negatively affect your life. You may have even been told by a doctor that you will need surgery or that you will need to be on medications indefinitely or permanently.
