"Recovered from Chronic pain Syndrome"

About: Great Ormond Street Hospital Central London Site

In 2011/12 my daughter became ill and suffered terrible pain in all her joints, after months of blood tests and scans with GP's & hospitals, we still didn't have any idea what was causing the pain. There was no help and no pain relief, my daughter required a wheelchair & 24 hr care. She cried everyday from the pain and begged for help, we were desperate to find her a treatment. Our GP referred my daughter to GOSH, the consultant was very kind, understanding & professional. With 45 mins my daughter had been diagnosed with CPS & had a treatment plan. Within 6 weeks she was 70% improved & after several months of hydrotherapy & pain management she made a full recovery. My daughter has just completed her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award & has just started her Silver Award. We will be forever grateful to GOSH and the kind team that helped my daughter back to full health. My now raising funds for GOSH and hope that this money will go towards helping other sick children. Thank you to everyone at GOSH, your work, kindness and professional approach was wonderful. My daughter and I will be forever grateful
