    I do see dr. morell at sitrin, but it is very hard to get ahold of him for meds. My lyraca is'nt covered by my ins. So of course, the pain is'nt any better. I can't even walk around the block without pain. Also, he won't fill out paperwork for ssdi. Sitting & standing for too long is painful. I just started OT, but I have all I can do to get there with no gas $$. My memory is shot and my depression and anxiety are out of this world. I just don't know what to do anymore. This has really changed my life. thanx.

    Shelly, why is it so hard to track Dr Morrell down for meds? Does he have office personnel? If so, you should be able to "call in" to have your prescriptions mailed to you. Have you tried contacting him personally via telephone? Depending on his popularity in the field and how effective his treatment is; it's not impossible to assume that he's extremely busy; however you can leave a message with his office staff requesting him to give you a return call.

    I'm curious. Did he say WHY he won't fill out the SSDI forms for you?

    There's a brand new online fibromyalgia support and meet-up group in your area. According to the website, it was conceived June 12, 2008 and it only has 2 members so far. (smile) you might find it interesting to join the group during conception because you won't be a newby. Maybe one of the 2 members can give you a heads up with reference to local fibro doctors. Good luck.
