What’s the problem?
There are three stages of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). Each stage is unpredictable and normally lasts for approximately three months. A person can experience different stages of RSD in different parts of the body simultaneously.
Stage 1: Acute – There is severe pain in the area of the injury including stiffness, swelling, and muscle cramping. The person may sweat profusely. There may be changes in skin color and temperature, and the individual may be more sensitive to light and touch.
Stage 2: Dystrophic – Swelling and pain increase and begin to spread to other parts of the body. Muscle tissue and bone may start to deteriorate. Nails and hair may change in consistency, and their growth may become erratic.
Stage 3: Atrophic – A person experiences unmanageable pain and irreversible muscle atrophy. Some patients may experience this third stage of RSD in all parts of the body.
