My mother was diagnosed with CRPS a few months ago. It seems to be getting worse though. What is the prognosis for CRPS?

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is not yet really understood by doctors and researchers. They do know that CRPS causes pain, but they have yet to figure out what is actually causing the pain. The also don't know who will recover and who will not.

Some patients with CRPS recover spontaneously on their own, while others continue to experience the pain despite any attempts at treating it.
