On September 26, 2019, SAA hosted our third Twitter chat. The chat focused on living with chronic pain, in honor of Pain Awareness Month. We had two special guests: Pain Management Specialist Robb Overbaugh, MD (@OverbaughRobb), and Dawn M. Gibson (@DawnMGibson), founder of Spoonie Chat. The chat focused on managing chronic pain, talking with health care providers about pain, treatments and lifestyle modifications, and personal advocacy.
The feedback and responses were insightful and relatable. Below we share the content of our #SpondyChat with our community, organized by question and answer. Enjoy!
Note: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to suggest discussion topics for future Twitter chats! We’d love to hear from you. And don’t forget to follow SAA on Twitter @spondylitis for updates on current news and events.
