These are some pictures of patients limbs that are affected by Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)/Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).

These pictures demonstrate swelling, colour changes, dystonia and other physical signs of the condition. Some of the pictures show the patients affected limb alongside one of the patients non affected limb for comparison.

These pictures demonstrate physical signs such as swelling, rash, colour changes, ulceration and dystonia.

Please note that not everyone with RSD/CRPS will show such vivid physical signs as shown in some of the pictures below and the physical signs may not be constant.

As demonstrated in the pictures, different patients limbs will vary from each other and will vary in appearance for that particular patient.

If you are a patient with RSD/CRPS and would like your photograph to appear here, please contact us at
