Burning Nights CRPS Support is a UK national charity dedicated to raising awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

CRPS Awareness Month


What is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS Awareness Month?

Throughout the month of November every year for the last 19 years, the CRPS community and their families and supporters around the world come together to help raise awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, we know it as CRPS Awareness Month. November is CRPS awareness month!

On the 1st Monday of November every year we also support the day which is known as Colour The World Orange Day™. Orange is the colour of CRPS awareness which is why we ask landmarks, buildings, Town Halls and companies to change their lights to orange as well as asking you to wear or do something in orange during CRPS awareness month.


Many of the landmarks, Town Halls and buildings that do get involved are showing their fantastic support of raising awareness of this horrific chronic condition not only for those affected by it but also their families, friends, carers and of course their loved ones. 1 in 3,800 people are diagnosed with CRPS every year and we need to unite throughout November in support of everyone who have had their lives turned upside down by CRPS.






Please help Burning Nights CRPS Support charity end Complex Regional Pain Syndrome CRPS awareness month 2017 on a high note by signing up to our Thunderclap message that will get sent out on 30 November at 12 noon.

All we ask you do is to sign up to this 1 message via your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account and that’s it! Thunderclap does the rest for you. On 30 November 2017 at 12 noon, everyone who has supported this message, will see our message appear on their social media profiles. So let’s get CRPS trending on the final day of awareness month!
