Keeping the Beast at Bay -

8 years ago150 views

Keeping the Beast at Bay is one of three videos produced for Reeling in the Pain - a creative initiative to shed light on the untold story of people suffering with nerve (neuropathic) pain. It tells the true story of a Dublin woman who was badly burnt in a house fire and sustained full thickness third degree burns to 26% of her body. As a result of the burns and about 60 operations the muscles, tissue and nerves in her body had become badly damaged. Six years after the accident, she was diagnosed with Neuropathic Pain.

Neuropathic pain leaves up to 120,000 Irish people with inexplicable burning, stabbing and shooting pains caused by unseen damage to the nervous system and because it has no obvious external scars, claims of pain are not always believed or fully appreciated.
