Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Awareness Month
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 Sympathic 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."
The awareness color for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is orange. Personalized Cause supports Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Awareness Month with an RSD orange awareness ribbon, RSD orange personalized awareness ribbon pin, RSD orange fabric awareness ribbons and RSD orange awareness bracelets.
