Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Awareness Month
November 1, 2022 – November 30, 2022 CDT
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Awareness Month, observed in November, is a time to increase awareness of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, the need for a cure, and spur advocacy on behalf of those suffering with the emotional, financial and physical burden of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a condition that includes a group of symptoms, including pain (often “burning” type), tenderness, and swelling of an extremity associated with varying degrees of sweating, warmth and/or coolness, flushing, discoloration, and shiny skin. RSD is also referred to as “complex regional pain syndrome,” “the shoulder-hand syndrome,” “causalgia,” and “Sudeck’s atrophy.”
