CRPS – Told by Sara Beach
CRPS, a condition I have suffered for 5 years. A progressive condition that the NHS describes as a poorly understood condition.
When I first got diagnosed I suffered from lack of information available, Doctors not listing to what I was saying. Most of the public not knowing or understanding pain related disabilities. I talk more in-depth about how i live with CRPS in another blog My Life With CRPS and why Everest.
CRPS is actually rather common as i later found out, one of the amazing young men i met along the way was Jamie Gane.
Like many others, I am on several types of strong medications to control my condition. Nerve medication to stop the Spasms. Lets not forget Anti Depression Medication to control my mental health through the bad days.
I have shared my story many times over the past years. With Talks, Blogs and interviews. People always seem amazed of how much pain can be caused by very little.
Sara talks about the changes CRPS has caused in her life. The worries she had when coming to terms with her disability. Sara talks about how the public viewed here and the discrimination she faced. I can relate to almost every aspect of her story so why don’t we let Sara tell us her story in her words.
