HISTORY OF NERVEmber

NERVEmber™ is officially used to represent Neuropathy Awareness Month, RSD, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Diabetes Awareness Month (November) by the Power of Pain Foundation. The word NERVEmber™ for this purpose was created by Barby Ingle in Oct. 2009. These awareness activities all started as back in 2007 by the Power of Pain Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity. As the Neuropathy community and nerve pain awareness movement grew, the awareness activities increased and grew into Nerve Pain Awareness Month or now commonly referred to in the pain community – NERVEmber.

NERVEmber™ brings awareness to the 150 plus conditions that have nerve pain as a symptom.The Power of Pain Foundation host the OFFICIAL NERVEmber project events each year. Since its inception, tens of thousands of nerve pain patients and organizations have signed on to help promote NERVEmber.

During the month of November, many people throughout the world come together for the nerve pain community. Events are held. Articles are written. Facebook statuses are updated. Instagram photos are posted. Videos are created and spread online. Proclamations are issued. It is important to remember, that these are all important things that can happen throughout the entire year, not just in November.

Reminder: Please feel free to use ‪#‎NERVEmber‬ in your social media posts and awareness events to raise awareness of RSD/CRPS/Nerve Pain/Neuropathy. This is an awareness movement by the Power of Pain Foundation. Creating pages titled NERVEmber/Nervember on social media and selling items with the trademarked term NERVEmber™ is illegal. We will be addressing this legal matter with those attempting to make money on products and pages not approved by the Power of Pain Foundation in writing. The only entity that has permission to sell products and create pages for this project is Power of Pain Foundation. Thank you!
