The pain from complex regional pain syndrome is constant. It impacts everything that you do. You are suffering physically, financially, and emotionally in ways that you could never have anticipated before your motorcycle accident, and you need help. Below are answers to three important questions that you should be asking if you suffer from this condition after a bike wreck.
What Is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?
Complex regional pain syndrome typically occurs in an arm, a leg, a hand, or a foot after an injury. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, complex regional pain syndrome happens when there is damage to the nervous system. People who experience this injury often experience:
- Significant and long-term pain.
- Changes in skin color.
- Changes in body temperature.
- Joint stiffness.
- Difficulties coordinating muscle movement.
The duration and extent of each symptom is unique for each person who is hurt. Some people recover from this type of trauma while others face a life-long disability. Medications, surgeries, rehabilitation therapies and other treatments may be necessary.
What Are Your Legal Rights If You’ve Suffered Complex Regional Pain Syndrome From a Motorcycle Accident?
