Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD) is a chronic condition associated with severe burning pain, pathological changes in bone and skin, tissue swelling, excessive sweating and extreme sensitivity to touch. It can occur after injuries from high-velocity impacts. One visible sign of R.S.D near the site of injury is warm, shiny red skin that later becomes cool and bluish. The pain is out of proportion to the severity of the injury and gets worse over time. Eventually the joints become stiff from disuse, and the skin, muscles, and bone atrophy. The symptoms of RSD vary depending on the severity and duration. RSD is treated with a variety of drugs. A good prognosis of RSD can usually be made if it is detected within the first three months of the symptoms.
