    Hi, I have just moved to the Jackson area and I am trying to find a good doctor. I moved shortly after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia, so I really feel like I'm starting at the beginning. Thanks for any help!! Beth

    I go to Dr Ferguson in Ridgeland MS. She is wonderful to me. She is a gp not a specialist but I have been to those too. She will work with you and treat you like you are the only patient she has. She really works hard on making sure you are on the right meds and she is so easy to talk too. Believe me I have been in there when I was falling apart and she has helped me so much.. I still have bad flares sometimes but I know I can always count on her to help. Good Luck she was a GOD send to me.

    Just happened to see this post. I'm looking for a new doc as well. I love my GP, but I'm not sure he really believes that fibro exists and doesn't want to manage it aggressively. I also need a good support network in my area.

    Beth, I have always heard good things about Dr. Ferguson. May check and see if she's on my list of providers, too. Good luck to you and God bless,

    Hi Beth,

    I live just south of Jackson but was diagnosed in Jackson. Dr. Rockhold told me I had FM, said everybody had it, gave me Tramadol and told me to come back in one year. It was one of my worst days yet with all the pain plus a tremendous headache. She was just not interested. This was in December. I have an appointment with Dr. Winklemann in Jackson on the 24th of Jan. I got his name from the internet, called to be sure he treated FM patients. We will see. Good luck.

    Thank you all so much for all of your help!! You don't know how much it means to me!! One quick question...GKRRT, which Dr. Ferguson do you go to in Ridgeland? I looked in the phone book and saw a Diane Ferguson MD & a Mitzi Ferguson MD. I am so excited about making an appoitment with a good doctor and finally getting some much needed help!!!! Thanks again...Beth

    I used to work with Dr. Diane Ferguson and she IS wonderful. I think I may schedule an appointment with her myself rather than going to a rheumatologist.
