CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)

GingerGGingerG Member Posts: 1 Listener
I became disabled with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) after a silly accident. I also have fibromyalgia and hypothyroidism I spend 90%og my time either in bed or in my wheelchair.  I try to use crutches but the pain is too much so can't use for more than a minute or too. I live in a flat one floor up so I can't get assessed for an electric wheelchair until I move. I'm on the medical list to bid for property but I live in London and 3 bed house for  wheelchairs are hard to find.
I don't leave my home much as it's. difficult.and uncomfortable to go down communal stairs on my bottom so I only really go out to gp and specialist/hospital visits.
