Helping You Understand Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Pain disorders can be debilitating and exasperating. It is common to see several doctors before getting a diagnosis, and it is common that pain-related disability claims are rejected. Whether or not anyone believes you, the agonizing pain continues to disrupt your days and nights and cause financial and emotional stress.
At Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, we know that complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is real. We also know that it takes extensive medical evidence to win Social Security Disability or long-term disability insurance benefits for CRPS. If you are unable to work because of the crippling pain, contact us for a free consultation.
Work With A Knowledgeable CRPS/RSD Lawyer
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), is usually associated with an injury to bones or joints. The person experiences severe, chronic pain and sensitivity that is not proportional to the injury. The excruciating pain continues after the bone or soft tissues heal. In some cases there is identifiable damage to nerve tissues, but in many cases there is not, which makes it very difficult to get a diagnosis.
Attorney Glenn Carey works with clients and physicians to arrange for specific tests that will reveal the nerve lesion or corroborate the severity and frequency of pain. He is knowledgeable about Social Security Administration’s medical criteria for CRPS/RSD and the telltale symptoms such as:
- Severe, burning pain long after the original injury
- Muscle spasms
- Stiffness or lost range of mobility
- Changes in skin color and temperature
- Changes in hair and fingernails
- Constant pain that may spread to the whole limb
- Muscle contractions and softening of bones
