St. Lawrence Health System's Fibromyalgia/Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) Support Group will meet on Tuesday, December 3, 12:00-1:00 pm, 59 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Clarkson Hall, Potsdam. Handicapped parking is available in front of Clarkson Hall.
This month’s topic will be “Developing an Emergency Plan for When a Pain Flare Occurs.” According to Group Facilitator Dr. Leslie Russek, “Holiday seasons can be particularly challenging for people with chronic pain and fatigue, with increased family obligations, stress, and commitments. It is particularly important to establish a plan for taking care of yourself if you have a flare, so you can implement it easily.” This meeting will provide participants with suggestions and worksheets for creating a personalized plan.
Dr. Russek is a professor at Clarkson University’s Physical Therapy Department and a specialist in pain management.
