Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is chronic pain that affects the leg, arm, hand, or foot and develops after an injury, surgery, heart attack, or stroke. The condition results from damaged or malfunctioning peripheral nerves, and the cause is not clearly understood. CRPS can occur in anyone, at any age and is more common with women. The condition peaks around 40, and is rare in children under 10 or the elderly.
