We are excited to announce our first publication!
The MSU pain article: “Pain profile and opioid medication use in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies” has been published in Rheumatology and MSU is proud to make the paper available to you at no cost.
Join us in celebrating our first publication by watching the recording of our Fireside Chat on Zoom about the MSU Pain Study that was held on May 31st. Learn how a community call to action led to this seminal paper on pain and myositis. Bring the paper and your questions and we discuss strategies to have conversations with your doctor about your pain and pain treatments that might be effective for you. We will also talk about where we go from here and future studies to understand the pain in myositis and treatment effectiveness.
It may have taken three years to get to this point, but we won’t rest until the pain in myositis becomes better recognized and treated and is listed as one of the top symptoms on surveys and resource sites, not something for the “other” box.
Our thanks go out to the myositis community. YOU made this happen!
