    My husband was discharged from the Army with CFS (he was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia by a civilian doctor...who really knows which it is!) and cannot seem to find a doctor who either A. knows ANYTHING about CFS or Fibromyalgia or B. gives a crap. He of course goes to the VA and they have referred him to a pain clinic in Murfreesboro, but that's for nerve damage he got in Iraq..they will not treat anything pertaining to CFS. Anyone in Nashville or surrounding who has a doctor who actually cares and works hard to help you? He's at the stage where he's angry and frustrated that noone cares or cares to know more about his condition. VA especially! Anyone have any recommendations? Hell, for a fantastic doctor, we'll travel to China if it'll make him feel better. Thanks everyone!

    I go to Dr. Victor Byrd in Nashville. He is very knowledgeable and willing to actually treat you.

    There is also Dr. Boomershine in Nashville, I believe he is in the Vanderbilt Group. His mother & grandmother have FM, or at least that's what I heard.

    There is also a good pain specialist Dr. Sun in Franklin. I have a friend who goes to him.

    Good Luck!

    Welcome to Middle Tennessee!

    I live about 100 miles east of Nashville and I see Dr. Eli Steigelfest at the Vanderbilt Medical Group located in Franklin, TN.

    I have gone to him for over three years making the trip every three months and he is super!

    He understands FMS and treats you with kindness and understanding. He listens to what you say and HE BELIEVES in fibromyalgia.

    Give him a try if you haven't found a doctor yet.

    I lived in Nashville 12 years and had the best results from a physcial therapist. Her name is Susan Underwood. She now has her own clinic at Green Hills area called the Susan Underwood Clinic. She specializes in cranial/sacral relief and most of her patients have fms/mps. She helped me tremedously.
