    a doctor who will help me.

    Dr barry Elson at northampton wellness center. They have a website so u can look it up. He is an intergrative doc so he uses natural meds and prescription meds.

    I really liked him but I am on disability medicare does not cover many of the things he does so I had to pick and choose what I could afford unfortunately I can not afford all the supps he has recommended and he will not make payment plans so now I owe him money have stuck with several of the supps and when I stop them I feel a difference.

    I did notice u can get the supps cheaper online than his office I found the daily energy infusion $15 cheaper online

    everything he said to me matches with what I have learned here and researching on my own.I was m ore interested in the natural approach as I have tried so many scripts it's hard to afford much on disability and medicare

    my almost mother in law has fibro and many other probs and went to the baystate pain clinic they take forever in between appts wenated to get her off her pain meds(which i have mixed feelings about) So she was very unhappy with them so far

    pretty sure elson will use pain meds if needed but my primary ws already giving me them he seemed happy that I was able to get them and have releif

    at one point he was going to take them over but I have had problems with them b4 so he left it with my primary.

    let me know if u have any luck-Kim :)

    I've had FM all my life and every specialist I see (pain, rheumy, spine, primary....) all tell me the only one in MA specializing in FM is Dr Goldenberg in Newton.

    for nothampton wellnes center they deal with fibro lyme and a bunch of other things. My primary doc said the wellness center has helped many people definately worth checking

    just wanted to bump this back to the front so your post does not get lost-Kim
