CRPS Support Groups

Meeting with other people who are affected by Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) can help you to remember that you are not on your own going through this difficult journey. Whilst they can't promise to make your pain go away, joining a CRPS support group provides the opportunity to hear others' experiences and advice on how to alleviate some of the symptoms, learn more about the condition, and make friends who truly understand what you are going through.


Where Are Our Support Groups?

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Burning Nights CRPS Support suspended in-person support groups and has since held regular online support groups through Zoom.

Virtual online support groups enable you to access many of the benefits of an in-person support group from the comfort of your own home. We understand that Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is unpredictable, so our online support groups provide some flexibility and are especially useful for those who might have struggled to get to one of our in-person groups.


The Aims of Our Support Groups

As a charity, we have several aims for our support groups, both in-person and online.

  • To enable CRPS patients, carers, families and friends to meet on a regular, monthly basis to provide mutual support.
  • To enable those affected by CRPS to meet others in a similar situation and to share their feelings and experiences.
  • To provide an opportunity to learn more and understand about the condition, so sufferers can educate themselves, family members, friends, work colleagues about CRPS.
  • To help provide emotional support and coping mechanisms.
  • To draw strength from other CRPS patients’ experiences or those affected by the condition.
  • To share information around care, healing and various treatments available.
  • To build a social network.
  • To improve the quality of life living or dealing with CRPS.
  • To try to reduce isolation and vulnerability that comes with living with a chronic pain condition such as CRPS.

Disclaimer

We want to provide support to all those living with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and to help you cope better with your condition. These support groups are there so that you can share your problems, feelings, ideas and information with others who are undergoing similar experiences. However, we cannot solve all of your problems, nor are these groups there to replace the services of a pain specialist, doctor or other health care professionals that may be involved in your care.

A support group is a good resource. Burning Nights CRPS Support is a registered UK charity run almost entirely by dedicated volunteers, many of whom live with CRPS themselves. We cannot provide medical, legal or welfare benefits advice. Any information or advice provided during a support group is not a substitute for advice from a trained professional. Do not make any changes to your medication or pain management regime without first speaking to your doctor, GP or specialist consultant.
