Nov 1, 2016

November is International Nerve Pain Awareness Month for people living with Neuropathic Pain.  The campaign uses NERVEmber to create awareness for over 150 conditions that have nerve pain as a symptom. The International Pain Foundation host the OFFICIAL NERVEmber campaign every year and since it’s inception tens of thousands of nerve pain patients and organisations have signed on to help promote NERVEmber.  Chronic Pain Ireland is proud to support this Campaign.

The color orange is the international color for chronic pain awareness. In over 150 conditions that do have nerve pain as a symptom, many are misunderstood, mistreated and often misdiagnosed.

Each day during the month of NERVEmber™ iPain (@powerofpain) will present an awareness task that we can all perform! We’ll be asking you to post or take part in various tasks throughout the month.

Task 1: #PainttheWorldOrange – change profile picture for the month to show support

Task 2: #PainttheWorldOrange – wear something orange

Task 3 #HOPEISTRUE – share a poem or a rhyme about how chronic pain has affected you

More about Neuropathic Pain
