Should I talk to my doctor about complex regional pain syndrome symptoms?

If you don't address complex regional pain syndrome, it can get much worse, so it's important to talk to your doctor about the symptoms as soon as they appear. With time, complex regional pain syndrome can cause your muscles to waste away, making it impossible for you to move normally. It can also spread to other parts of the body. However, treating your complex regional pain syndrome can help you avoid this, as well as allow you to avoid problems like stiffening of the joints.
