    Hi,

    I would enjoy very much meeting with other people to develop friendships and support networks as well. Please let me know if you are in this area.

    Also, I would enjoy hearing and helping in anyway, everyone, no matter where you live!

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Hello Robert -

    Just saw your note. I am in the Boston area and actually found your note because I am doing a search on Boston fibro resources. There was a support group I was going to before but am turned off by the fact that I feel that the people hosting the group might have a conflict of interest since they are providing services. I would like to find acupuncturists, massage therapists, chiropractors, etc that people in the area have used that they've actually found helpful - the system of trial and error is turning out to be quite prohibitive.

    Hi,

    Perhaps if you tried contacting the NCF (www.ncf-net.org) you could get a list of support groups or even maybe doctors in your area as they're in Needham, MA.

    Best of luck...I'm in CT/NYC. :)

    Hi Robert-

    I live in Arlington (just outside Boston) and was officially diagnosed with FMS after seeing Dr. William Pachas at Mass. General. He's been wonderful. He's gentle, and understands this disease.

    I've also had accupuncture done at Pathways to Wellness in Boston. I've stopped because my insurance didn't cover it. But it did help the pain.

    I think my next step is to find some kind of pain management, coping group. I need to be able to have this disease and try and live a normal life.

    Take care,

    Eric

    Hello there,

    I live in Melrose and I can recommend both the FFC in Waltham and Dr. Joe Burstein accupuncturist in Wellesley. I suffer from both CFIDS and FMS.

    Best,
    Elizabeth
