A2Personally I don't have it, but I've met several people who do. What is exactly you'd like to ask?

RSD (or its new name, complex regional pain syndrome) it's a syndrome in which the nervous system reacts in a wrong way to some kind of event, either obvious (such as injury to a limb) or obscure (like a general disease not specific to the painful are). This wrong reaction leads to chronic pain sensation along with apparent changes in the skin (such as changes in it's color, sweating, temperature etc.)

It may be treated with supporting measures and drugs when necessary.
