(= Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) Diffuse, persistent pain of an extremity associated with pathological changes in the nerve supply to its blood-vessels, in the nutrition to the skin, and in the mobility of the joints.
condition in which following minor trauma to a limb, there is the development of a pain syndrome with trophic changes in the affected area (altered vascularity and sweating; thinning of the skin)
Pain, usually burning, that is associated with "autonomic changes" -- change in color of the skin, change in temperature, change in sweating, swelling. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy is caused by injury to bone, joint, or soft tissues.
Diffuse persistent pain usually in an extremity often associated with vasomotor (blood vessel) disturbances, trophic (nutritional) changes, and limitation or immobility of joints; frequently follows some local injury.
A clinically determined syndrome characterized by burning, atrophy, hypersensitivity, temperature changes in the affected area, and decreased range of motion. The cause is usually trauma. This has recently been renamed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
a chronic condition where pain does not subside and muscle function begins to deteriorate.
A condition characterized by burning pain, abnormal sensitivity to sensory stimuli, poor circulation and changes in the skin, muscle, bone, and joints.
(RSD). A chronic and painful condition that usually affects an arm or leg. Signs and symptoms include intense burning or aching pain along with swelling, abnormal sweating and hypersensitivity of the area.
Over active sympathetic muscle reflex.
caused by an abnormal sympathetic muscle reflex, giving rise to a response that is out of proportion to, and inconsistent with, the injury.
