Erythromelalgia Poem Example

Red Ink

Burning man syndrome diagnosed quite rare

  A life drowned by a sea of intense pain

    Without warning walking unable to bear

       Red ink covering soles with red-hot coals

     Yesterday's dreams cremated with goals
   Specialist to specialist to Mayo...

Praying for strength and miracle repair

*Erythromelalgia is a rare progressive neurovascular condition that most commonly affects the feet, but may also occur in the hands, face, or other parts of the body. The term neurovascular means that both nerves and blood vessels are involved. It is characterized by intense, burning pain of affected extremities, severe redness (erythema), and increased skin temperature that may be episodic or almost continuous in nature. Etiology is unknown; symptomatic treatment only; no cure. Typically affects both sides of the body (bilateral), may sometimes involve only one side (unilateral). Triggering or worsening of symptoms with exposure to heat (heat intolerance) or exercise and relief with cooling. The disease course may be extremely variable from case to case. For more info go to
