Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Type 2
CRPS Type 2 is caused as a result of an injury to a peripheral nerve. Peripheral nerves link the limbs and organs to the central nervous system.
The pain of CRPS Type 2 is intense, burning and unremitting pain in the area of the injury. Sufferers can also experience changes in hair and nail growth in the affected limb and joints in that area can spasm or even seize up. CRPS is the most painful condition known to medical science.
For more detailed information on the symptoms and stages of CRPS, please visit our page, Symptoms of CRPS.
The difference between CRPS Type 1 and CRPS Type 2
The difference between CRPS Type 1 and CRPS Type 2 is that in CRPS Type 1 there is no direct damage to the peripheral nerves in the affected limb. In CRPS Type 2, there is identifiable nerve damage.
As CRPS Type 2 is caused by an injury to the peripheral nerves, unlike CRPS Type 1, the pain and other symptoms do not spread beyond the original injury site.

Although there is no cure for CRPS, there are a variety of treatments and therapies which can often help the long term management of the condition, including reducing levels of pain. For further information, please visit our page, Treatments for CRPS.
