You do NOT have to register. Simply click the button above on Friday, June 22nd a little before the start time of 4 PM Eastern (3 PM Central, 2 PM Mountain, 1 PM Pacific) to join the IBM Patient Video Support Session.
This session is tailored to those diagnosed with, or suspected of having, Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) also known as sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (sIBM).
In addition, we have a separate dedicated video support session for those with Polymyositis, Dermatomyositis, Necrotizing Autoimmune Myopathy, Juvenile Myositis, and other unspecified or nonspecific idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (myositis).
The needs of IBM patients vs. the other inflammatory myopathy patients tend to be different.
For IBM, there are currently no treatment options available and IBM is a more progressive disease. IBM patients will usually require a wheelchair or powerchair at some point as remission is currently not something many IBM patients will experience.
For those with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies other than IBM, discussion tends to focus around treatment, treatment side-effects, remission and flares, upcoming clinical trials for PM/DM, and other related experiences that are different for these types of myositis.
Both our IBM and our Myositis Patient video support sessions are non-medical, patient-led, open discussion sessions where you can share experiences, ask questions, compare notes, and make new friends.
For some, this will be the first time ever seeing another myositis patient in person!
