Hi, my name is Welshjayne2021! Does anyone have advice on dealing with Post-Impairment Syndrome?
Hi, I’m Jayne and I live in sunny South Wales, with my youngest daughter and my husband. My eldest daughter and son live with their partners. I have had CP from birth and basically just got on with life until recently. Over the last couple of years, my mobility has been in decline, not to mention the muscle stiffness, the pain and the overwhelming fatigue. I have just read the article about “Post Impairment Syndrome” and suddenly, “the penny drops” it all make sense. My Gp has referred me to a Rheumatologist, but from my research (I research everything) on rheumatoid arthritis, my symptoms don’t fit the bill. Post Impairment Syndrome explains so much. I would be happy if anyone could suggest ways of dealing this new challenge to my life, I would be very grateful. Thank you in anticipation.
