My cousin has something called CRPS and she says that it affects more women than men. Is this true and if so, why?
CRPS, complex regional pain syndrome, is a painful disorder that does affect more women than men - more than twice the number. Doctors and researchers don't know why it affects more women, but many illnesses do affect one sex more than another.
