Quote of the night: “Pain is an indicator. Don’t ignore it.” January’s Lipedema Patient Roundtable featured a special guest appearance by Dr. Melissa Gallagher, who addressed knee pain associated with lipedema. Questions like “What’s the best sleeping position?” “How about supplements?” “Can kinesio taping or red light therapy help?” were answered by the medical professionals on hand, with our patient panelists sharing their own experiences with joint pain, buying good shoes, and flat feet (among other things).
The Lippy Butterfly, Angelique Charles, talked about the importance of self-care (and creating “date night – with YOURSELF.”) From migraines to collagen, and of course, the benefits of Lympha Press pneumatic compression, this episode is rich with so much good information, you’ll want to take notes.
