My children, husband, and I have been living with chronic migraine for over 10 years. I am the one diagnosed with chronic migraine, but my disease affects everyone in my home. I always knew my pain affected my daily life, what I did not know was how much it impacted my husband and children. Sometimes my pain is so severe that I cannot even think about another human nevermind recognize what it is doing to them. Witnessing my husband suffer from a migraine turned my view of the disease around. It was not until this moment that I was able to comprehend how my migraine disease affects my family.
Can my medication be refilled virtually? How do I know if my insurance covers telehealth? Is my privacy protected when I connect with my doctor online?
On Monday, Aug. 24, at 1 pm ET, pain expert Jeffrey Fudin, PharmD, DAIPM, FCCP, FASHP, FFSMB, will be answering your questions about how to access pain care via telehealth.

In advance of its Pain Awareness Month campaign, which will focus on the importance of multidisciplinary care, U.S. Pain Foundation has launched a survey on barriers to effective pain management. The survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete. It is open to all United States residents with chronic pain.
“We know that multidisciplinary care is best practice in pain management, but too often, multimodal therapies are unaffordable or otherwise inaccessible to patients,” says Nicole Hemmenway, U.S. Pain Foundation CEO. “We’re hoping this survey can help us better understand some of the barriers patients face in getting the treatment they need, and in doing so, help identify possible solutions.”
