So what is RSDS? RSDS is also called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and it is neurological disorder where victims experience tissue swelling, severe burning pain, heavy sweating, extreme touch sensitivity, and pathological changes to your bones and skin. RSDS/CRPS is when nerve damage occurs and doesn’t heal like it should. Can you imagine the pain you feel when you have a pinched nerve in your neck? Now imagine that this pain stays for years and nver seems to heal and you can get a general idea of what people with this disease suffer through daily.

Diagnosis to this disease is hard to make because there is no test that can be done specifically to check for it. It requires the doctor and patient continually evaluate symptoms and document the progression over time. If you don’t have a regular doctor who has treated you for a long time, you could go undiagnosed for years before finding out you have RSDS.
