Does anyone know if RSD/CRPS can be spread to your offspring if you had it while pregnant with your child? Or if you have it and got it after birth does that mean that I carry a gene that I could pass on to my child that makes them more susceptable to getting RSD/CRPS? Kinda like diabetes etc? I dont think it can but I would like to hear thoughts on this.
I've read articles saying it could be genetic. But there wasn't any conclusive studies so they really don't know how we get it or where it comes from. What does happen is a change in your genes when you're in chronic pain for a long time. But that's all that's I know is for sure.
I wouldn't worry about it unless he shows signs of it. Usually there's a trigger moment that 'causes' the start of CRPS, but sometimes it just happens. Does he seem like he's in pain for no apparent reason?
I do not believe you can give it to offspring because it starts after getting an injury there just doesn't seem to make sense to me that it could become genetic. But if you want him tested they would only be able to diagnose him of he had symptoms that show signs of crps
