What is this?

My boyfriend suffers from RSD (see below), a chronic pain condition, and has been unable to receive proper treatment or seek some way to manage his pain. I have been watching him get by, but I feel that his pain prevents him from truly enjoying life.

About Chris

Chris is a 25 year old male trying to accept this struggle and continue with his daily life. Before the RSD, Chris learned to dance as seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqPcijhgruQ. Today, Chris cannot do this without being in extreme pain.

He has been competitively gaming for over 9 years and has been dedicating time towards reaching a professional/competitive level in League of Legends and Halo. You can Like his Facebook Page to receive updates when he streams (via Twitch).

Currently, Chris struggles with the constant pain that he feels due to the RSD and he is unable to seek the proper medical treatment that he needs. As all conditions do, this impacts his life as well as those around him. 

Goals

My goal is to raise as much awareness and support for Chris as possible. Funds will be split between Chris's medical expenses and for research.

  • I aim to get Chris a second opinion and further treatment (possible surgeries to help, physical therapy, pain management, etc)
  • I aim to help Chris reach out to others
  • I aim to create awareness
  • I aim to donate to the RSDA for research

What is RSD?

"Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS, formerly known as RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a progressive disease of the Autonomic Nervous System, and more specifically, the Sympathetic Nervous System. The pain is characterized as constant, extremely intense, and out of proportion to the original injury. The pain is typically accompanied by swelling, skin changes, extreme sensitivity, and can often be debilitating. It usually affects one or more of the four limbs but can occur in any part of the body and in over 70% of the victims it spreads to additional areas."
