Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic, painful, and progressive neurological condition that affects the skin, muscles, joints and bones. The syndrome usually develops in an injured limb, such as a broken leg (e.g., ankle fracture, or following surgery. However, many cases of RSD involve only a minor injury, such as a sprain (e.g., ankle sprain). And in some cases, no precipitating event can be identified.  ----
RSD/CRPS is characterized by various degrees of burning pain, excessive sweating, swelling, and sensitivity to touch. Pain may begin in one area or limb and then spread to other limbs. In some cases, symptoms of RSD/CRPS diminish for a period of time and then reappear with a new injury.
Type 1—without nerve injury
Type 2 (formerly called causalgia)—with nerve injury
Both types of RSD/CRPS share the same signs and symptoms.
Signs and Symptoms of RSD/CRPS

The symptoms of RSD/CRPS often progress in three stages—acute, dystrophic and atrophic.
The acute stage occurs during the first 1–3 months and may include
1. burning pain---
2. swelling
3. increased sensitivity to touch
4. increased hair and nail growth in the affected region
5. joint pain
6. color and temperature changes
The dystrophic stage may involve constant pain and swelling. The affected limb may feel cool to the touch and appear bluish in color. Muscle stiffness, wasting of the muscles (atrophy) and early bone loss (osteoporosis) also may occur. This stage usually develops 3–6 months after onset of the disorder.

During the atrophic stage, the skin becomes cool and shiny, increased muscle stiffness and weakness occur, and symptoms may spread to another limb.
Characteristic signs and symptoms of sympathetic nervous system involvement include the following:
1. Burning pain
2. Extreme sensitivity to touch--
3. Skin color changes (red or bluish)
4. Skin temperature changes (hot or cold)
Pain caused by RSD/CRPS usually in not proportionate to the degree of injury. It can be triggered by disuse of the affected limb or by stress and can be spontaneous or constant.
Symptoms associated with an immune reaction include:
1. Joint pain
2. Redness
3. Swelling (edema)
4. Frequent infections
