BURNING FOR A CURE!
WHAT IS CRPS?
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a progressive, neuro-inflammatory chronic pain condition that seems to be a result of dysfunction of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Typically, CRPS initially presents in an extremity following an injury, trauma, or surgery but can spread. Patients will typically report pain that is out of proportion to the inciting event along with other symptoms, (in the affected limb), such as inflammation, colour and temperature changes, increased sensitivity of skin, sweating changes and/or assymmetry, decreased range of motion, motor dysfunction, and changes in hair or nail growth. Within the medical community, it is currently considered the most painful disease a person can expierence.
Please consider a contribution to help improve awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. All funds raised will go to distribution of materials and education within our community.
We are always looking for individuals to help us with our fundraising events.
Please contact us at if you would like to be involved.
Our mission is to increase awareness about Complex Regional Pain, one person at a time, through sharing our personal journeys with others and educating them about the disease.
