    My family doctor who I've been seeing for 10 years moved out of state. So, I am going to a new one on Tues.

    I'm getting a physical since I haven't had one in ages. I have fibro, cfs, ibs, osteoarthritus and back problems. I keep reading about all these tests that people have done. I'm wondering what, if any, special tests I should have run.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Same here.. I hate to change doctors . I have no answers but I will be watching for answers.

    I am going to ask for a complete thyroid panel, vit. D3 , Iron levels, I am sure they will order the basic ones but would like to know what to ask for.. As I question my dx all the time.. which are CFIDS, FM, Sjogrens, Anxiety/Depression.. I also have my package from Igenex (sp) labs would love to have the lyme test.. as my lyme test from the regular test have all been negative.

    Hoping you get some good answers,
