S. 889

A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

TO RECOGNIZE NOVEMBER 4, 2020 AS "COLOR THE WORLD ORANGE FOR COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME/REFLEX SYMPATHETIC DYSTROPHY AWARENESS DAY" IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

Whereas, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, is a nerve disorder that causes chronic pain; and

Whereas, the symptoms of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome are often described as a burning that is out of proportion with the severity of the initial injury and can include swelling and extreme sensitivity to touch; and

Whereas, while Complex Regional Pain Syndrome was first identified during the Civil War, it remains a poorly understood condition for which there is no cure; and

Whereas, research relating to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and other institutes of the National Institutes of Health; and

Whereas, every year, members of the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome community spend the month of November spreading awareness about this poorly understood pain disorder; and

Whereas, in November of 2020, members of this community will celebrate the seventh annual Color the World Orange Day. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:

That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, recognize November 4, 2019 as "Color the World Orange for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Awareness Day" in South Carolina.
