Reflexive Sympathetic Disorder
Reflexive Sympathetic Disorder and SSD Benefits
Reflexive Sympathetic Disorder, also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, is a chronic condition involving pain that can occur throughout the body. In most cases however, it affects either an arm or a leg. Symptoms include intense pain that has a burning sensation, and that often gets worse with time instead of better. Depression and anxiety are also common symptoms, especially after a prolonged period of time dealing with the illness.
The pain is severe enough that it can incapacitate the individual, thus not allowing them to work. The psychological aspects of the illness (depression and anxiety) can debilitate the person and make it difficult to work.
