This condition is often associated with extremely minor injury, usually to an extremity, for example, an arm or a leg. It has been known to occur after even a relatively small laceration, or after a blunt injury to a wrist or an ankle.

After the initial injury sometimes severe and non-ending pain, usually described as a ‘burning sensation’ is felt. It is often associated with extreme instability of the blood vessels in the area.

There is often an increase or decrease in apparent temperature, sweating in the area and later a cool, purplish coloured limb may be seen with an associated deterioration of the skin and the soft tissues.

Such conditions can sometimes be diagnosed effectively and early by the use of thermography and by sophisticated skin tests which assess the function of the sympathetic nerves, which control the opening and closing of the outer blood vessels.
