An information day and free medical consultations on the symptoms and ways to treat Bekhterev’s disease will be held in Burgas on December 2 at the Library. They are organized by the Bulgarian Association of Bekhterev’s disease patients, with the assistance of the Municipality of Burgas.
From 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., educational lectures with a rheumatologist, psychologist and orthopedist are planned. Entry is free and does not require registration. The same specialists will provide free consultations from 13.00 to 15.00 hours. Pre-booking is required for a personal consultation.
It is important to note that consultations with a rheumatologist are provided for people without a diagnosis, but with similar symptoms.
Bekhterev’s disease “prefers” young people up to 35 years of age. It is an autoimmune disease and its symptoms are difficult to recognize until they become visible and cause disability. They are associated with frequent back pain that worsens at rest and is relieved by movement; morning stiffness that lasts more than 30 minutes; frequent sweating in the evening. Detailed information about the symptoms can be read at: www.spondylitisbg.org.
During the lecture part, the new solutions related to the disease will be indicated. Carriers of the disease and their relatives will be present. They will be able to share experiences and understand that they are not alone in this ordeal.
