Dr. Ginevra Liptan – the Medical Director for The Frida Center for Fibromyalgia in Oregon—will visit LiveSupportGroup.com at 9pm Eastern Standard Time.

“I am honored to talk again with Live Support Group, an amazing organization that allows you to access a support group via phone. This is so helpful for those that don’t have a local fibromyalgia support group,” she said.

Dr. Liptan has extensive clinical, personal and research experience with this illness. She developed fibromyalgia when she was in medical school and has devoted her medical to treating and educating people about the condition.

Dr. Liptan’s newest book, The FibroManual: A Complete Fibromyalgia Treatment Guide for You-and Your Doctor. To order the book on Amazon, click here.

The Mayo Clinic describes Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

    I would like to thank National Pain Group and Ed for notifying fellow chronic pain patients who might be suffering from fibromyalgia about Dr. Liptan, an amazing and knowledgeable Dr. in re: to practicing Fibromyalgia and having the disorder herself for a number of years,therefore being able to relate well to her patients. She will be attending the Live Support Group Meeting this Wed. Evening and making a presentation, as Ed was very nice to announce. After her presentation she will try to answer questions of people attending the meeting. This should be a great and fantastic opportunity because she is such a knowledgeable Dr. and our last meeting with her was very valuable.

    I want to Thank National Pain Report, for posting the upcoming meeting, on Live Support Group, featuring Dr. Liptan, this Wednesday. I also am grateful to Dr. Liptan, for giving her time, and to LSG for offering the platform, so she can share her extensive knowledge, about Fibromyalgia. After she speaks, she will also give time for, members to ask question, about Fibromyalgia. In this rare opportunity, many of the mysteries people have, may gain the answers, they need. When questions are answered, mysteries lose there strength. Again, Thank you Ed for sharing the information.

    Dr. Liptan is a special woman and doctor. I was there at the last group meeting when she was there and she spoke about her book. What an amazing woman to meet.

    Thank you, Ed for writing this article to let more people know she is coming again. Without people like you spreading the word people with Fibro distant places in this country would not get to hear some of the top doctors talk! Keep up the great work.
