President Trump and the Autoimmune Community

Ten days ago I was in a discussion with a few friends about the recent US Presidential inauguration and the election in 2016 of President Trump.

Given we were all in the medical world we were interested in the impact of President Trump’s election on different aspects of healthcare. Not just the repeal of Obamacare!

I ran a poll to get a feel for the views of the multiple sclerosis community. And I have to say I found the diversity and intensity of the different position fascinating. For more see here.

So I am keen to extend this research to autoimmune conditions and fibromyalgia in particular. So it would be really great if you would share your views by taking part in the poll below.

If you have anything more to share please feel free to do so in the comments box below.

Thanks in advance for your help.


Honestly, I won't know for sure until he finishes changing everything. However, I don't see how it could get worse considering I already have to pay for all my condition specific medications because apparently "they're not medically necessary". I've went to natural remedies because in the long run they cost less and don't poison my body As much. I haven't even been to a Specialist because the insurance doesn't pay anything and I'm not made of money. I see my PCP for yearly check ups and the occasional ailment just to get a diagnosis. So unless he makes us pay insane amounts of money into a system that doesn't give back, then I believe we will survive.
