    Are there any doctors out there that have fibromyalgia? I am wondering about MEN doctors. I'm pretty sure there are lady doctors and they do speak up but I am wondering if there are some men that are willing to speak up. Or maybe the disease only hits certain people. ggks

    Check out Mark J. Pellegrino, MD. He has written several books and has this DD.

    On the Seattle Fibro and Fatigue website, Dr Levitz says she watched her mother suffer with it. No, she isn't a man.

    Now how can a doctor have fibro when they don't believe it exists!!?? LOL


    Maybe we should have unbelieving docs call the ones who have fibro!!

    Dr. Teitelbaum has fibro. His protocol is based on what he found to be helpful.

    Dr. Kent Holtorf has CF. He treated a patient by the name of Bob Baurys. Bob started the FFCs using Dr. Holtorf's protocol. Now Dr. T is running them.

    Some of the LLMDs have had Lyme. Dr. Joseph Burrascano (NY) is one. Dr. Masters (MO) is another.

    Please someone correct me if spelling is wrong, I can never remember how to spell her name.

    But, she is a doctor, a fellow fm-sufferer, and has writen very knowledgably about the condition. She has several good books and a website that is also very informative.

    Truly, this kind of resource is about the only kind I feel I can trust.

    My doctor does believe it exists and has many FM patients.....but they really do need to take a walk in our shoes!

    You're really close: Dr. Devin Starlanyl, who has written some of the best books about FM and MPS.

    Good post!

    THE Dr. David Bell, told me himself he had CFS. (I saw he for just one visit)

    Also, Dr. David Gersten, in Solona Beach, California, has CFIDS. (I treated with him for about 1 year. LOTS of improvements)

    We also have a male MD who has been posting recently, but I can't recall his USERNAME.

    Hi,

    How did Dr. Gerston help you? I am in northern california but could possibly make the trip but the expense would be hard so I'd love to get an idea of what to expect.

    Thank you.

    louisek, I have a cut & paste from an old post of mine. I will post this to you in a new thread and title it, LOUISEK, about Dr. Gersten.

    My osteopath is a man and has FM, and a chiropractor, Greg Penniston who runs gauilife.com that sells guaifenesin, also has it. Both men must be recovered or in some type of remission because I think they both practice full time. A rheumatolotist I saw once didn't have it himself, but his daughter does. Also, a Dr. Paul Strand saw his wife through FM-- they consider her recovered.

    I wonder if you are a doctor and get it, or know a doctor and you have it, if you don't spend ANY time in a psychiatrist's office trying to figure out the root of your unexplained depressive symptoms, and get treated sooner and more aggressively. Just my musings.
