    Hi

    I live in Sydney and would like to find out if there are any others out there from Sydney. I need to find the name of a good rhuematologist who is familiar with fibro and will not fob me off. I have a good psychiatrist who I see regularly and he really helps. I need someone who specialises in this area so if someone could recommend a doctor it would be helpful.

    Thanks

    Hi Mellow, My daughters and I saw Dr Champion at St Vincents private,or it may have been a clinic,you would probably know, I cant think but he is there and he is very good. its Dr David Champion. The women that work there are lovely as well,we havent been back because we moved to the south coast and my husband has not had full time work so it would be more than we can afford,I hope you try him he is really understanding. Do you think many people know about FM in Australia and understand it?.I find it hard to explain. Good luck with your quest. Pam

    Hi Pam

    Thanks for the name of the doctor at St. Vincents. I will ask my G.P. about seeing him. Was he able to advise you and your daughters of any treatments that might help? I would be interested to know what he told you. I find that there doesn't seem to be much information available from the medical community in Australia or much awareness of this illness. I have got more information from this site and reading various books on the subject than I have from any doctor. I see you live on the South Coast. Its lovely down there. We spent a lot of holiday time at Sanctuary Point when our kids were younger. I hope you and your daughters are doing o.k.
