National Pain Report Editor Ed Coghlan will visit the LiveSupportGroup.com online chat for chronic pain on Wednesday June 29, 2016 beginning at 9pm EDT. It will be the second time Coghlan has been featured.
“I was honored to be asked to return,” Coghlan said. “The interaction with pain patients is very helpful to the news site and hopefully helpful to them.”
Live Support Group is a non-profit corporation which created an online support groups for chronic pain patients earlier this year that has begun to attract a wide audience.
“After Ed visited us, the members of LiveSupportGroup were so pleased to get to know Ed, the National Pain Report and more about the unbiased nature and true concern he and his organization have for the Chronic Pain Patients. Unfortunately, not everyone was able to make the interview and others had more questions, so we thought it would be very helpful and interesting for Ed to come back for a second Interview,” said Robin Viola-Pfeffer, who founded LiveSupportgroup due to her 40 years battle with Crohn’s Disease and losing 3 family members to Crohn’s.
The Live Support Group not only has a chronic pain group but also has developed one for fibromyalgia patients. Recently, Dr. Ginevra Liptan, who founded the Frida Center in Oregon, which is the first practice in the country to focus exclusively on fibromyalgia. Dr. Liptan, who developed fibromyalgia when she was in medical school, has written a second book on the subject.
The book, The FibroManual: A Complete Fibromyalgia Treatment Guide for You and Your Doctor, is doing very well on Amazon and is available in book stores.
Coghlan previously appeared with the chronic pain group on May 14 in a lively and spirted two-hour discussion about the National Pain Report and reaction from members about the issues facing them as chronic pain patients.
“We were very pleased that Ed enthusiastically agreed to revisit us, so that we can discuss these critical issues facing the Medical / Chronic Pain community in more detail. We at LiveSupportGroup are here for one reason only and that is to help our members in their day to day lives,” added Viola-Pfeffer.
