    Where did you live in MO. I'm here now and am always looking for a good Doc. I live in the middle of MO Home of the state fair. Sorry I can't help you in Florida, but there are many here who can!

    Anna, maybe you "should" change the title of your post to add "florida".

    You can try the doctor referral section at this site. Don't know if that will work for ya. Otherwise, find out about local CFS or FMS support groups and contact them.

    I live outside of jacksonville and I too am looking for a doc in jax for FMS. I have been told Andrea Trescot in OP is great. She is a pain doc tho and I dont know if she takes medicaid. Good luck in your search and welcome to Florida. If I come across anyone I'll let you know..
