    Hi there, I am writing to you regarding your post on the thread about "Ethnic Heritage". I cannot believe what that Rhematologist said to you (not doubting you...just unbelievable).

    I have been diagnosed with FMS/CFIDS for over 8 years and am on SSD. I am Puerto Rican. My sister also has FMS, as do 3 of my female cousins. We are all 100% Puerto Rican...not white and certainly do not have too much time or money.

    Well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I was seeing a Rheumy for a while who was convinced that FMS has nothing to do with cognitive difficulty or memory loss.

    Get yourself a new doctor....QUICK!!!
