CRPS causes pain to the hands, feet, arms, or legs.

The severity and frequency of symptoms vary widely. Some people have repeated episodes, while for others, symptoms disappear forever after a few months.

There are two types of CRPS:

In Type 1, an apparently trivial injury, such as a fractured or sprained ankle, has occurred, but with no nerve damage. Around 90 percent of cases are Type 1.

Type 2 may emerge after breaking a bone, having surgery, or after a serious infection. There is clear evidence of nerve damage.
