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.
NERVEmber is officially Neuropathy Awareness Month, RSD, CRPS, and Diabetes Awareness Month (November). 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.
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. 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. Selling items with the trademarked term NERVEmber™ is illegal. We will be addressing this legal matter with those attempting to make money on products not approved by the Power of Pain Foundation in writing. The only entity that has permission to sell products for this project is Power of Pain Foundation. Thank you! Read more here.

Chronic pain is pain that has lasted for a long time. In medicine, the distinction between acute and chronic pain has traditionally been determined by an arbitrary interval of time since onset; the two most commonly used markers being 3 months and 6 months since onset, though some theorists and researchers have placed the transition from acute to chronic pain at 12 months. Others apply acute to pain that lasts less than 30 days, chronic to pain of more than six months duration, and acute pain that lasts from one to six months. A popular alternative definition of chronic pain, involving no arbitrarily fixed duration is “pain that extends beyond the expected period of healing”.
Neuroscientist and inventor Christopher deCharms demos an amazing new way to use fMRI to show brain activity while it is happening — emotion, body movement, pain. (In other words, you can literally see how you feel.) The applications for real-time fMRIs start with chronic pain control and range into the realm of science fiction, but this technology is very real.
