RSDCRPSAdvisory Support Group Opens It’s Doors to All Chronic Pain Sufferer’s

Our Group originated to help inform, guide and support those diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome aka Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Causalgia. For the families and friends of. Nearly everyone with RSD/CRPS will also have Fibromyalgia, although not everyone with Fibromyalgia will have ever have RSD/CRPS. RSD/CRPS is a Neuropathic pain Condition, Fibromyalgia isn’t. Fibromyalgia is still very painful (I know, I have it, too)

We are now expanding our group to offer the same support to all those struggling with Chronic Pain. If you are struggling with a chronic pain condtion of any kind or know someone who is, please let them know about us. We look forward to meeting you

We are a caring, loving, compassionate and understanding group of people who have been through a lot, yet we are not our without faults. We’ve not only endured pain, but surgeries, multiple diagnosis’, dealt with depression, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia. We’ve been mis understood, put down, been called drug seeker’s, addicts and more. Many of us have been alienated from family and friends.

A support system is necessary to achieve the best possible chance at a quality of life.

Our atmosphere is often playful, laughing and fun loving. Laughter is the best medicine and distraction ever! We will cry together, encourage one another, lift each other up when we fall. If you have an issue with another, please don’t hold malice in your heart… let it go. The stress and the tensing of your muscles will only cause you more pain. Breathe in, breathe out.

People sometimes have bad days, say things they don’t mean, say things they perhaps do mean, but pain often speaks louder than words themselves. Words can be let go, pain cannot be.  

Chronic pain regardless of what the condition, disease or illness is..  is still pain. Neuropathic pain, Neuralgia, Fibromyalgia, Post Cancer Pain, Diabetic Neuropathy it’s all painful.

We want you to have an at ease, calm and peaceful experience.

This Group was created for you the people since it’s birth.

We welcome you, please join us!

Please help us and join our cause! We’re helping to raise continued awareness for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Causalgia, Post Cancer Pain, and Diabetic Neuropathy.

We’re supporting the Power of Pain Foundation (POPF) in their ongoing efforts to assist patients and caregivers dealing with these and other life altering Neuropathies. Beneficiaries include patients who are economically and socially affected by these invisible diseases.

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Causalgia that effects over 10,000,000 people in the United States alone. It is also an auto-immune disorder.

RSD/CRPS is a painful, progressive and often debilitating, neurological disorder that affects the network of nerves along the spinal cord. The Sympatheic Nervous System is commonly known as “Fight or Flight”. The left side of our brain contains the Para Sympathetic, the calm side and the right contains the Sympathetic. Imagine a frightful event, a tiger enters the room. The fight or flight response is our basic human instinct of survival. Fight the animal off, and face the serious consequences (fight) or get the heck out of there (flight aka fly away).

Image that a car alarm has been activated. You’re not sure why it was barely touched. It continues on with the loud noise. You finally realize that nothing you do is stopping it. Sensitivity may have triggered it but in any event it never shuts off. In this analogy there is no solution to shutting the alarm down. None!

Of course the option would have been to either cut the wires to cease the noise or to somehow dismantle or uninstall the system causing it. The alarm is the non stop seemingly never ending pain that a RSD/CRPS patient feels constantly.

There is no cure to date!   Hope to see you there!

If  you have RSD/CRPS and are interested in possibly working this event with me or can help in anyway please email me at twinklevanfleet@crpsadvisory.com
