I'm so excited. The wonderful doctor who first diagnosed me went out of practice just 4 months after I started with her. It's been five months now that I've been without a rheumy - also been without medications except Neurontin for about 3 months. I was scared to find another doctor. I'd heard such horror stories. Then I went to my pediotrist, he was asking me about the FM. We had a good discussions about alternative care, etc. Then I happened to ask him if he knew a rheumy who would treat FM and not be turned off by alternative care too. AND he said "Yes, actually I do know someone." So today is the day. Please send positive vibes - I hope I'm not getting my hopes up that he'll be as caring as my last doctor.
