Hi, can cerebral palsy get worse suddenly?
This is something that's been bugging me for a long time now; I've managed my CP very well for the majority of my life, to the point where it barely challenged me at all, but since the age of 16 (I'm 19 now) I've suddenly been experiencing extreme pain and fatigue and I don't know what's happening. I know that CP technically can't get worse because of the damage can't progress but I know about post-impairment syndrome and things like that. However, I assume that these things occur slowly and progress over time, but for me, pain and fatigue has been sudden and intense and so not a lot has helped. I'm back in physiotherapy now and am using an EFS to ease the pain and fatigue when I walk, but I'm struggling to understand why things have gotten so bad so quickly. Can anyone help me?
