CRPS/RSD affects a limb or other body parts, and can also spread to different areas or the whole body. It causes prolonged and excessive pain, and often combines with other symptoms, such as swelling, sweating, abnormal hair and nail growth, tremors, and skin temperature/color changes. There is no cure, but diagnosis within the first 2-3 months is critical for the best chance of reversal or remission. Yet since it's a rare disease, countless doctors don't recognize it. As a result, many patients lose precious time and suffer unfortunate consequences. Just by knowing this disease exists, YOU ALREADY HELPED! Thank you for being aware of CRPS/RSD. It could happen to a friend, a loved one, or even you. PLEASE help spread the word.
