CRPS Has Been Linked to Medical Malpractice; Here’s Everything Those Diagnosed Must Know!

CRPS, or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, is what was formerly known as RSD. CRPS is a pain disorder and considered to be permanent, or as medical professionals often refer to it: “chronic”. There are several ways a person can develop Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. CRPS can be sustained through an obvious physical injury such as a surgical error (in cases of Medical Malpractice, to which CRPS-II has a direct link), or can be sustained in an accident such as a car or motorcycle crash. Regardless of how a person develops the condition, it’s considered to be one of the most excruciating, permanent diseases a person can suffer from.

For CRPS Diagnosed Patients, There’s New Information, Help, and Hope

A CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) diagnosis can be a relief to many people. Knowing that their pain is real, validated, and lending a name to everything they’ve felt possibly for years is a relief, mentally. Despite the relief a CRPS diagnosis may bring to a patient’s mental state temporarily, the toll chronic pain takes on the psyche of a patient is immeasurable. Living with CRPS, a disease dubbed “the suicide disease” due to its lack of proven symptom relief, is an endless nightmare of doctors, treatments, procedures, and tests that all lead down the same road: endless pain and suffering both physically and mentally for which there may never be a standard cure.

CRPS Pain Can Be Lifelong, But Early Prognosis is Promising for Management

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome affects every patient who suffers from it differently. It’s estimated, however, that 90% of those with a diagnosis of CRPS suffer from Type I, while the remaining 10% of patients suffer from Type II. In our first installment on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome back in early 2018,  CRPS Victims Are Suffering Physically, Financially After Medical Malpractice we offered insight on exactly what CRPS entails, and how those who have become victims of medical malpractice may have grounds to bring litigation if a medical professional is found to have been negligent in their care.

Shaked Surgical Series Part 3: CRPS After Medical Malpractice

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (“CRPS”) affects every victim who suffers from it differently–although no less painfully. Doctors estimate that 90% of those with a diagnosis of CRPS suffer from Type I (without visualized nerve injury), while the remaining 10% of victims of this suicide-inducing disease suffer from Type II (with visualized nerve injury).
