Burning Nights: Increasing Awareness of CRPS in the UK and Worldwide
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy effects people in the UK and around the world
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) formerly Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, is a poorly understood condition which affects many people in the UK and across the globe. CRPS can cause a person to experience persistent, severe and debilitating pain.The condition may develop after an injury, surgery, stroke or heart attack, but the pain is out of proportion with the severity of the initial injury.
The cause of complex regional pain syndrome isn’t clearly understood and CRPS awareness in the UK is low. Treatment for complex regional pain syndrome is most effective when started early. In such cases, improvement and even remission are possible.
Support and help for sufferers of CRPS in the UK and around the world
With low awareness and understanding of CRPS both globally and in the UK, it is vital that a support system is in place for those who suffer from this condition. Burning Nights offers detailed information and RSD support for loved ones, carers, friends, families and sufferers. Throughout the site there is evidence based information on causes, symptoms and treatments, as well as an outlet to speak about the difficulties of living with this condition through the forum on the site. This is an outlet for sufferers or carers throughout the UK to share their experiences and learn new methods of dealing with CRPS, or just to have a general chat.
Burning Nights aims to improve the quality of life for sufferers, carers, families and friends. Increasing knowledge of CRPS on a global and national scale in the UK is a necessity. Through the products on offer on this site, awareness and support of CRPS/RSD can improve through increased visibility and information. We are a fully registered UK charity (Charity Registration Number 1166522) specifically aimed at not only raising awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome amongst the public and medical professions but also supporting all those affected by the condition.
