CRPS is a chronic condition that can affect one of your limbs after either an injury or surgery, although it can also manifest after a stroke. It is a chronic condition because the symptoms are present for 6 months or longer, and these are characterized as severe and persistent pain.
The pain is typically localized to an area that can be very sensitive to the touch and can show signs of swelling and stiffness. It can also affect the muscles which can lead to movement spasms and other related symptoms.
