    Well I've decided after 10 years to see Rheumy as I've been avoiding dealing with "any" Dr.'s, but my symptoms are overwhelming.

    Thanks for any referrals.....................carole

    There are two Rheumys in Walnut Creek and San Ramon, Dr. Rashmi and Rajiv Dixit, they're husband and wife that diagnose and treat FMS. You could try one of them if it's not too far. Btw, you pronounce "Dixit" like "fix it". =}

    They're located at the
    Northern California Arthritis Center
    120 La Casa Via Suite 204

    and at the
    Northern California Arthritis Center
    5201 Norris Canyon Rd Ste 305
    San Ramon, CA 94583-2179

    I think there are other Rheumys in the two centers who deal with FMS as well.

    Oh, I just found this link for the Centers. Click on "Our Doctors" and it seems to show that they're located in other places as well possibly like Concord and Castro Valley. If I'm reading that right. Eden is in Castro Valley.

    Hi Caroleye,

    If those Arthritis Centers are too far away from you, you might want to call them and ask for referrals to Rheumys who Diagnose FMS that are closer to you.

    Because they're too far for me, I will take your suggestion teejkay & see if they can refer me.

    I was about to go to a rheumy who doesn't touch Fibro; just my Lupus. Think I need to search furher.

    Thanks & Healing Light****************carole
