Nine years ago, our friends at the International Pain Foundation launched an incredibly important and genuine campaign called NERVEmber. Every November, the month-long #NERVEmber campaign exists to raise awareness and advocacy to the over 150 various conditions which list nerve pain as a symptom. At the heart of this issue are the individuals who feel the physical effects of nerve pain and how their lives are impacted by it.
Here at KWC, we regularly treat patients who suffer from Neuopathic pain conditions such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), and Fibromyaglia. With CRPS alone, we have retained a 90% success rate in being able to offer significant relief from chronic pain. By far, the most rewarding part of our work is being able to witness that relief first-hand, particularly in cases where other types of treatments failed to provide reprieve.
Over 150 different nerve pain diseases have been identified to date, directly affecting the daily life of more than 700
million people worldwide. November 2017, people living with or affected by a nerve pain disease, patient
organizations, politicians, medical professionals, researchers and industry will come together in solidarity to raise
awareness of nerve pain diseases. – iPain
Join us in helping to promote this worthwhile and important campaign that puts those suffering from chronic nerve pain at the center of the campaign, and are in fact, completely patient-led. Wear orange, call special attention to those in your life who might suffer from chronic nerve pain, and invite them to share their stories with those who may be unaware that such conditions exist.
We’ve shared this story before but #NERVEmber is a great time to share it with those who may have missed it the first time. After a decade of suffering from severe chronic pain due to a combat injury, PTSD, and depression, Mallory has finally found relief.
