    Dear All,

    I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a list or directory of CFS/FM specialists listed on the net?

    I recently moved to Chapel Hill, NC. If anyone can recommend someone in this area.

    Thanks!

    Go to this sites homepage.
    Click on the "Doctor Referral" Link
    On the page that opens, you will see Co-Cures Good Doctor List--Click on it.

    I found my Doc here---and He is wonderful!
    Best Wishes,

    I hope this website hasn't stopped allowing LINKS! That is CRAZY!

    Not allowing LINKS only hurts the people that this WEBSITE is designed to HELP!

    What gives???????????

    I am going to a rheumatologist who specailises in FMS/CFIDS.
    So far he is very good and very understanding.He is at UNC.Its so conveinient for me Im only 10 mins away. I was told he has a fibromyalgia clinic.His name is Dr Winfield.I see him at the rheumetology Department.I wouldnt settle for anyone else there at the rheumy clinic.It may take a couple months to get in because he is very busy but once your in you can get in regularly as often as needed.They have a pain clinic at UNC too but I have no idea about that and from my past experiences with pain clinics I dont think I want to give it a try.Someone here I think was going to check it out and let us know. There are alot of us NCers on here.Keep in touch. I have ben saying I want to get us all togather and this week I am feeling better and thinking that maybe now itamight ctually be a possibility.Last week I was bearly walking,had to use a cane and then I only took steps sparingly,my church was bringing in meals and they had me down for 24/7 care as needed, but the Dr put me on a pain patch ( Duragesic)that gives me 24/7 coverage for pain and i feel like I have my life back.Way better than Oxycontin ever did for me.Im so happy this week to feel almost like my old self.I sure hope it lasts.Well keep in touch and let me know if I can help. Mabey we can get togather sometime. Where in Chapel hill are you?

    I can't believe it, they took away the link. We have recommended that to so many people and I put my doc on it. Here's how you find it. You need to go to the World Wide Web and look for co-cure which is an organization. When you get to the site look at the bottom of the page and click on the state or country where you need a doc and they will give you a list of docs who have been recommended. If the doc is self-referred it is so noted.

    To save you the time, since they took away the link I'll give you what I can find for the Chapel Hill area.
