Turn to Our Law Firm for Cases of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Following a Vaccine

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a painful and debilitating condition that affects the nervous system. Symptoms are often most severe in parts of the body that have previously experienced trauma, but individuals may have symptoms in other parts of the body as well. It is possible to experience complex regional pain syndrome after a vaccine, and individuals who are diagnosed with vaccine-related CRPS may be entitled to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

Symptoms of CRPS That May Develop After a Vaccine

Individuals who are diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome can experience a variety of symptoms and effects. Pain is generally the earliest and most prevalent symptom, and pain from CRPS can range from a deep ache to a sharp “pins and needles” or burning sensation. Other symptoms of CRPS may include:

  • Abnormal sweating
  • Increased sensitivity to touch, temperature or vibration
  • Loss of muscle control and coordination
  • Muscle spasms and weakness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Sensory impairments
  • Shaking or tremors
  • Swelling
  • Warm, tender or discolored skin in the affected areas of the body

Complex regional pain syndrome is a chronic condition; and, as such, many individuals diagnosed with the condition experience symptoms for the rest of their lives. There is currently no known cure. While there are a variety of treatment options, these options currently focus on mitigating patients’ pain and other symptoms. Treatment for CRPS can become inordinately expensive over a person’s lifetime, and individuals who are unable to work due to CRPS can experience substantial loss of income as well.

What Vaccines Can Cause Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

While the specific cause of complex regional pain syndrome remains unknown, there are studies which suggest that it is possible to get CRPS from a vaccine. These studies have focused on three vaccines in particular:

Cases of complex regional pain syndrome from a vaccine remain extremely rare. But, the body of scientific evidence linking CRPS to the hepatitis B, HPV and influenza vaccines is growing. As a result, anyone who is experiencing symptoms of CRPS after receiving a hepatitis B, HPV or influenza vaccine should be sure to mention their vaccination to their doctor.

Understanding Compensation Options for Cases of CRPS from a Vaccine

In addition to seeking medical attention, individuals who are experiencing symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome following a vaccination should consult with a lawyer to learn more about their legal rights. Vaccine recipients diagnosed with CRPS may be eligible to receive compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. The VICP is a federal program that covers the costs of pain and suffering, medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses and lost income resulting from vaccine-related medical conditions. Legal representation for VICP claims is available on a no-cost basis.
