If you suffered an injury in the past and are now experiencing persistent or nagging pain that will not go away, you may be suffering from reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Falling under the broad title of chronic pain, these two disorders may make it difficult or impossible to do normal work. You may also need extensive medical treatment, including prescriptions to deal with the pain.
