    By the way, we share a birthday!! Welcome aboard. You'll find a lot of information and very good people here.

    Have you seen a Rheumatologist? I think that's the most widely used doc. Although, they're not the only ones. General docs & pain specialists are also useful I think...

    Up top of this page, there's a doctor referral button that you can click on to see if there's a "good" doc close to where you live.

    Hi. Glad you found us. FMS is a horrible illness, but everyone here goes through the same things and we all support each other! I was diagnosed with FMS about 6 years ago. I see a rheumatologist and I'm very happy with her. I hope you find a good doctor who understands FMS. Finding a doctor who respects and understands you is crucial. They will work with you and help you through any flares you may have. Also, this site has a lot of good information! Nice to meet you!
