Burning Nights CRPS Support
Victoria Abbott-Fleming qualified as a non-practising barrister in 2002, however shortly after starting lecturing in 2003, Victoria suffered a seemingly a simple accident at work, which very quickly turned complex. Eventually she was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) in her leg. After almost 3 years of trying treatments unsuccessfully, doctors decided that Victoria needed an above knee amputation. Following her amputation, she eventually contracted Swine Flu while on holiday in 2014 & upon returning to the UK it was found that she had nerve damage causing the CRPS to spread & was again diagnosed with CRPS in her only leg. Unfortunately after 9 months her left leg needed amputating above the knee, leaving her confined to a wheelchair and unable to use prosthetics . Victoria is now the Founder & Chair of Burning Nights CRPS Support charity dedicated to supporting everyone affected by CRPS as well as raising awareness.
