Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome
Amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome (AMPS) is a very painful medical condition. It frequently affects a limb (a foot or leg more commonly than a hand or arm), but can cause pain anywhere in the body. In fact, children with AMPS can experience pain throughout most or all of their bodies. Most children with AMPS have constant pain, although some children experience intermittent attacks of pain followed by pain-free periods.
