Solution to the 2017 CRPS Day puzzle (20.11.2017)
Here’s the solution to a word-search puzzle I created for November 6th; the 2017 awareness-raising day for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS. It’s a rare & usually invisible disease, and to make it even harder to pin down, many physicians seem to use its old name; Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or RSD.
Pinning down the date of CRPS Day can be confusing as well; it’s the first Monday of November each year, so it changes from one year the next. This year, it fell on November 6th, so that’s the day I posted the puzzle I’d created.
How rare is CRPS? Well, it’s so rare that ‘CRPS Awareness Day’ isn’t even officially recognized – not in Canada at any rate. So everything done in Canada, to raise awareness of CRPS, is done at an individual grass-roots level. Just like my puzzle! For information about CRPS, read the post for this year’s post on CRPS Awareness Day (2017) or It’s CRPS Awareness Day 2016!

It’s a home-made game, so there’s no fancy dynamic – or on-line – version of either the puzzle or the solution. If you opt to share it, please credit me with the link in this paragraph (to the post with the puzzle). Thanks ‘-)
