Pain Images Help Explain CRPS

Having Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is an overwhelming challenge – and one big reason is that others (family, friends, physicians, etc.) have a hard time understanding what your pain feels like. To help communicate your CRPS pain, For Grace has collaborated with leading pain advocacy organizations to develop a series of visualizations that can assist you. Better understanding of what you’re going through with CRPS will lead to improved compassion and care. Link HERE to see and download these helpful graphics. We’d love to hear how these images work for you. Please share your feedback by emailing us at forgracewip@yahoo.com.

October Story of the Month

Check out For Grace's October Story of the Month! Woman In Pain Charlene Crowley began having unusual symptoms in her mid-40's. Despite unexplained pain, stiffness, fatigue and severe double vision, she bravely continued her work in law enforcement until her progressing lack of wellness forced her into a full-time search for a diagnosis and treatment. After multiple doctor visits across many states with a laundry list of tests, however, Charlene was left with the diagnosis of "PSYCHOLOGICAL" as of her writing. She states, "I am at a total loss!"
