Complex REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME (CRPS)
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is an uncommon form of chronic pain that usually affects an arm or a leg. Complex regional pain syndrome typically develops after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion to the severity of the initial injury.
The cause of complex regional pain syndrome isn't clearly understood. Treatment for complex regional pain syndrome is most effective when started early. In such cases, improvement and even remission are possible.
Signs and symptoms of crps include:
Symptoms may change over time and vary from person to person. Most commonly, pain, swelling, redness, noticeable changes in temperature and hypersensitivity to cold and touch occur first.
Over time, the affected limb can become cold and pale and undergo skin and nail changes as well as muscle spasms and tightening. CRPS occasionally may spread from its source to elsewhere in your body, such as the opposite limb.
In some people, signs and symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome go away on their own. In others, signs and symptoms may persist for months to years. Treatment is likely to be most effective when started early in the course of the illness.
To help relieve CRPS pain we recommend a transdermal pain spray which allows you to apply the active ingredients where they are needed. While we typically recommend a gel, the CRPS affected areas typically hurt too much to even use a pain gel. This particular transdermal pain spray is revolutionary when it comes to treating chronic pain, as it allows you to deliver the medication exactly where it is needed for immediate relief.
If you’re ready to relieve your CRPS pain, the fastest and easiest way to get your transdermal pain spray is to fill out the medication request form below and take the first step toward relief.
