Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a serious condition which can occur after an injury or surgery. It can cause severe chronic pain, swelling, extreme sensitivity and changes in the skin. These symptoms are a result of dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system and is often a very debilitating condition.
Research has shown that the development of CRPS after surgery can be reduced by 70% by taking 500mg Vitamin C tablets for 50 days.
Prevention is the key for this condition. If you are heading into surgery it is definitely worthwhile discussing with your Pharmacist or GP about taking some Vitamin C supplements.
