    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    I have not heard of cppd and can find no info on it,but the people on here are knowledgeable and I'm sure you will find what you want.

    Funnily enough I came across this last night when going through a book on arthritis, as it's one of those conditions that although not arthritis tends to fit better under that umbrella than elsewhere. The common name of pseudogout seems to me to be rather unhelpful, implying something not quite real, but I imagine it feels all too real when it's kicking off?

    Hi there.
    I've never heard of cppd either but I do recall the term pseudo gout appearing on here once or twice. Here you can access former threads on it http://tinyurl.com/kg54rxn

    Also Arthritis Research UK has quite a bit of info on it http://tinyurl.com/l37rsbu

    That apart we can all empathise with the pain, fatigue etc so do feel free to ask any questions you may have.
