    I live near Pittsburgh area and having a tough time finding a doctor who believes Fibro is a real illness. How do I go about finding one. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    My advice would be to find a Dr who will help you find the CAUSE of your symptoms instead of giving you a FMS diagnosis that has NO KNOWN CAUSE and then just treating all your symptoms for the rest of your life.

    Everything has a cause, you just have to find it like I did. I have a chronic borrelia burgdorferi infection (lyme).

    regardless of whether they can find a specific cause or not. Anyhow, I would try the good doctor list at the top of the main fibro page. You do what to make sure all other possibilities are ruled out as many disorders can mimic FMS.

    Good Luck.
