Chronic Pain and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
You may have suffered injuries in an accident and although your doctor has predicted a full recovery, the pain that you are suffering from is still there. You’re not recovering in line with your medical experts predictions.
It could be that you have developed Chronic Pain Disease.
There are lots of reasons why this might occur. Sometimes it’s because an accident victim has had previous life trauma and they are more vulnerable to prolonged recovery patterns as a result. Other times it is completely unpredicted. Sometimes your body may have physically recovered from the effects of an accident but the neurological signals that travel around your body are still telling your brain that pain still exists. There is no set pattern but the result is very real and often extreme ongoing levels of pain.
Chronic Pain Disease can a devastating effect on your life and cause other problems such as feelings of being unable to cope and depression.
In extreme cases accident victims can go on to develop Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) which is pain completely out of proportion with the original injury you may have suffered in the body’s extremities. Sufferers will often experience physiological changes such as swelling, burning sensation, changes in skin colour and extreme sensitivity to touch. This condition has been known to be permanent and progressive.

Chronic pain is still relatively new as a medical concept. It can be very difficult to prove and often a person who is suffering from it who has been involved in an accident will be accused of exaggerating their claim. You need a legal team that knows exactly what this condition is, how it can affect your life and more importantly, how to prove you are suffering from it and that it has been caused following an accident you were involved in that was not your fault.
