A photo of podcast guest Jamie, who lives with 5 chronic illnesses.

Jamie is a social media chronic illness advocate under the handle @LoveWarriorHugs, but her advocacy extends beyond social media. She is an epilepsy ambassador with the National Epilepsy Foundation, and she’s also been involved in successfully lobbying to change pain management laws in Illinois. Her passion for advocacy stems from her own experience living with five chronic illnesses, asthma, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia and IBS.

On this episode of the Major Pain podcast, Jamie discusses her chronic illness journey. The illness that currently affects her the most is trigeminal neuralgia (TN), which causes daily facial pain. Jamie walks us through how this disease works, the many treatments she has attempted and the link between TN and MS. She discusses how her diagnoses have interwoven with her life, including the difficulty of balancing chronic illness with motherhood and how her passion for advocacy was sparked.
