In some people who have long lasting pain, biochemical changes are triggered in the body, causing a different type of chronic pain known as neuropathic pain, that doctors currently find difficult to diagnose and treat. Pain signals, which are triggered by the nervous system may continue to fire for months or even years.
People who suffer from Chronic Pain Syndrome often find every aspect of their life's greatly affected. From the ability to dress one's self in the morning, to strain on relationships, CPS makes it very difficult to manage every day life.
Patients with CPS are often encouraged to develop realistic goals in managing their pain. Various medications and surgeries are available which may nearly cure an individual suffering from the disease, however the same medications may have little to no affect on another.
If you or someone you know suffer from Chronic Pain Syndrome, you may be eligible to claim the Disability Tax Credit. This allows you to significantly reduce the amount of taxes you must pay, and is most beneficial when retroactively claimed for up to the past 10 years. Once you are DTC certified, the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP) becomes available to you, along with up to $90,000 in grants and bonds.
