Central Pain Nerve Center

Patient Leader

We, Becky Brandt, RN & Lisa Davis Budzinski, started the CPNC to share comprehensive medical information about Central Pain Syndrome & other intractable pain conditions. As CPS patients, we offer a first-hand perspective on medications, treatments, & resources for living with Central Pain Syndrome. .We find it extremely important to assist & support others going through their own pain journeys. We know how difficult life can be with intractable pain, so we offer comprehensive medical information and decades of collective knowledge. Aside from information about health care, medications, doctors, and treatments, we'll offer a fresh perspective on daily living well with CPS and chronic pain
