Burning Nights CRPS Support’s Reaction To Amputation For CRPS

In reaction to the news stories about amputation, Burning Nights CRPS Support’s position as a charity whilst we agree that Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and other chronic pain conditions should be included as a classification for the Paralympics.

We do not believe that amputation is the best course of action as a treatment for CRPS, unless there are specific reasons concerning the health and welfare of the person, such as ulceration, sepsis or skin breakdown.

As the Founder of Burning Nights CRPS Support, I want to help all those affected by this devastating condition which includes those living with CRPS, their relatives, partners, carers and friends. I'm also barrister, advocate & have lived with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) since 2003. I am also a bilateral (double) above knee amputee due to aggressive symptoms of CRPS. Please help spread awareness of this debilitating and life-changing condition - CRPS. We need your support!
