What are the symptoms of CRPS?

Every person experiences CRPS differently, with a unique set of symptoms.

These possible symptoms are grouped into four main categories:
Category 1: Sensory Symptoms – Heightened pain and increased sensitivity to touch

Category 2: Vasomotor Symptoms – Changes in temperature and color. Your affected area might feel unusually warm or cool and show visible redness or discoloration.

Category 3: Sudomotor Changes – Swelling or excessive sweating in the affected area.

Category 4: Motor & Trophic Changes – Symptoms like excessive hair growth, changes in nails, and movement challenges like stiffness or tremors.

But here’s the key takeaway – everyone’s CRPS journey is unique. Experiencing some symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll encounter them all. Each journey with CRPS is individual and distinct.
