Strange suicide syndrome addressed by experts

It has been reported that according to a new study, almost half of patients with complex regional pain syndrome, aka suicide disease, have eventually considered suicide.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic condition that is also known as the “suicide disease”. It causes severe dysfunction in sensory, motor, and autonomic nerve functions, leading to debilitating symptoms.

The condition may also cause atrophy or wasting of tissues in the affected area of the body, or sometimes excessive hair growth.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is characterized by chronic pain and inflammation that typically occurs after an injury, surgery, or other medical events such as stroke or heart attack. In some cases (7%), CRPS may occur without any preceding injury or surgery.
Accoridng to the reports, “Approximately 200,000 individuals in the United States are estimated to be affected by CRPS each year. One study discovered that 49.3 percent of CRPS patients contemplated suicide, and the actual suicide attempt rate was 15.1 percent.”

It has been also reported the fact that CRPS is usually categorized into two groups: type 1 (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) and type 2 (causalgia).

Both types of CRPS typically affect the limbs, hands, or feet, and share the same symptoms. Trauma or injury to the affected limb usually triggers CRPS.

The symptoms of CRPS differ from person to person, typically appearing four to six weeks after the initial incident.

The first and most prominent symptom of CRPS is severe burning pain that is not proportional to the severity of the injury.

This pain progressively worsens over time and may originate from the site of injury before spreading to the entire affected limb. The pain can be continuous, sporadic, or intensified when the affected limb is touched.
