    I am looking for a doctor that will treat my FM and actually help me when I tell him that I am in unbearable pain that is totally controlling my life. I was diagnosed over 5 years ago and still havent found a doc that will help me. I have a more severe case, but my age is what scares the docs out of helping me.

    I saw Dr Don Goldenberg at Newton-Wesley Hospital, he is an expert in the treatment of FMS.
    Best of luck,

    I have seen him already. I went to him for a second opinion. I really wish that he treated people but he is way too busy!

    Thanks anyways!

    Maybe he would give treatment recommendations to your doctor based on the one time you went to him, even though he can't take you on as a patient .
    Take care,

    She is on the good doctor list. She's holistic, so they're not approved by most insurance plans, but she's awesome.

    Let me know if you need more info.

    i just read that they're opening an ffc (fibromyalgia and fatigue center) in boston if you're inclined to spend that kind of money.

    Are those any good? Everytime I google something on FM, those show up in the advertising section. Usually those that advertise arent as good. Im not saying that they arent, but I have never heard of them before.

    Do they not accept health insurance?
