My name is Amanda Nelson.  I developed CRPS almost 5 years ago, in 2010, after suffering numerous soft tissue injuries caused by a rare congenital foot deformity, Navicular Calcaneal Coalition (bilateral), which was diagnosed at the age of forty. As a result of the condition I had a triple fusion, but had presented with CRPS symptoms long before the surgery. I was diagnosed with CRPS 18 months after receiving the Coalition diagnosis and a year post-surgery.

Pre-CRPS, I was very active, taking part in many sports, and travelled extensively, living and working overseas. Developing CRPS changed my life irrevocably and I took it very badly. I turned my life around when I rediscovered cycling through a charity called Charlotte’s Tandems, which in turn set me on a journey to raise awareness of CRPS, and Cycling for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome was born.
