    please tell me if anyone knows of a good doctor or group for treating FM? what about UCSF? i am so sick, i don't know what to do...

    any idea would be appreciated since i don't know how long i can keep this up...linda

    [i do have a rheu. doc but she is no help and i have a shrink but she is not much help either...they want to throw up their hands in frustration at me. it makes me feel even worse that i can't get better by what they say...]

    please, if you can, help me with some suggestions?

    I'm in S.F. and have had CFS for about three years. There
    is a source of Bay Area Docs And Pracs but I'm not fam-
    liar with any of them. Went to UCSF after waititng al-
    most four mos, for an appointment only to be told that
    they really don't know much about CFS, so I explained
    it to the "Specialist" rheumy as best I could! Sorry
    about the cynicism ! There are however, some people
    who deal with the problem, I'm tolded.(??)

    See: http://pages.sbcglobal.net/choandjewel/cfids/docs.htm

    http://www.co-cure.org/usa ca.htm

    There is also an Immunesupport group in S.F. if you would
    like access to the info.?? I have some specific names
    of people if you need them also but have not had any per-
    sonal experience with them. I believe other peo. here
    may have as well as know of other Docs etc. Look 4 their
    replies also. Sorry, sometimes I feel we are all in the
    same boat. Hope you get to feeling better and find some
    good help!!

    Sincerely,
    MRDAD

    If you consider Los Gatos part of the Bay area, and if you can make it that far.

    His name is Dr. R.O Waiton, and he is on Almendra, right off the main street. He is on the "good Dr. " list for this board. He is a Nobel Lauriate and knows how to treat CFIDS, and Fibro. He is also a Rehab. specialist, he knows how to subilt things to SSI, and he is also very nice.

    the road to feeling much better again! I'm in the Miss-

    warm spot also.
