RSD can cripple a patient’s family and social life the same way it can affect them physically. A variety of RSD symptoms may cause afflicted individuals to become isolated and lose friends.

What’s the problem?
The social activities many RSD sufferers previously enjoyed can be greatly reduced or even stopped altogether. One of the main reasons for ‘dropping out’ is to avoid the question “What’s wrong with you?”, and trying to explain the condition. Unfortunately because of these problems, individuals with RSD / CRPS may become isolated and lose friends.
Being unable to become fully involved in family activities is restricted, and avoiding family functions is sometimes considered an easier option rather than trying to explain the facts about the condition and how they feel. Additionally, the overwhelming fear of the affected limb being more painful through contact, as it frequently is, can present many problems and may extend to the rejection of any type of physical contact. This fear can be especially depressing when it prohibits a person playing with their children or grandchildren.
One of the most often noted problems is a person’s own doubt as to what they are actually suffering from. This is hardly surprising, when there are so many conflicting theories being expressed as to the cause of RSD, its prognosis, and the skepticism that some doctors have as to the actual existence of the condition.
