Is RSD a disability?
In this manner, is CRPS classed as a disability?
A diagnosis of CRPS, in and of itself, will not qualify you or disability benefits. To determine whether you qualify, the SSA will look at your residual functional capacity. Essentially, they will consider how your condition affects your activities of daily living and work related activities.
Additionally, what is the difference between RSD and CRPS? RSD is sometimes called Type I CRPS, which is triggered by tissue injury where there is no underlying nerve injury, while Type II CRPS refers to cases where a high-velocity impact (such as a bullet wound) occurred at the site and is clearly associated with nerve injury.
In this way, what kind of disease is RSD?
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome
Is RSD life threatening?
RSD / CRPS is associated with a variety of skin disorders including rashes, ulcers and pustules. Although extremely rare, some patients have required amputation of an extremity due to life-threatening reoccurring infections of the skin. Patients describe their disease as though it had a mind of its own.
