Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a disorder affecting specific parts of the body — often a limb. It's also often called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).

The disorder's symptoms typically begin with pain, swelling, and limited range of motion, and then travels to the skin and bones.

While the disorder typically begins in one limb, as much as 4/10 people report symptoms throughout their entire bodies.

The importance of Pain Awareness Month

September is Pain Awareness MonthHere at Southern Pain & Neurological, we know that chronic pain doesn't just come and go one month every year.

Chronic pain impacts people's lives all year long. But having a month dedicated to pain awareness is incredibly important, as it helps to raise public awareness around chronic pain — a health condition that far too many people don't fully know about.

One of the most frustrating aspects of chronic pain is that it's often not visible to others. This leads people with chronic pain to feel like they suffer alone. And it leads them to think that no one believes their pain because it can't be seen or measured.

Pain Awareness Month is designed to help chronic pain sufferers know they're not alone, and was created to educate the public, as a whole, about the pervasiveness of chronic pain.
