Loughborough woman starts cauda equina syndrome charity

Help

A Leicestershire woman has set up a charity to raise awareness of a rare condition which has left her with permanent damage to her spine.

Annie Glover, from Loughborough, was diagnosed with cauda equina syndrome after suffering a prolapsed disc last year.

She hopes her charity will help both the public and medical profession to understand more about the condition, which has symptoms including acute lower back and leg pain.
