Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic (lasting greater than six months) pain condition that often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury.  CRPS is believed to be caused by malfunction of, or damage to, the peripheral and central nervous systems.  The central nervous system is composed of the brain and spinal cord; the peripheral nervous system involves nerve signaling from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.  CRPS is characterized by excessive and prolonged pain, and changes in temperature, skin color, temperature, and/or swelling in the affected limbs.
