    I talked to my doc this morning about some questions I had. My denial for disability retirement and the basis for it (a bogus report from a psychiatrist hired by the state) has him so ticked off that he is out to show them who's right!!!

    In addition to the tilt table test I had on Monday he also also ordered a 24 hour urine test for cortisol levels. He has done this because in CFS the levels are usually low and in depression, which the shrink said was my only problem, they are high. He added that he will also include the paper he has written to back up his statements and the results of the tests!

    Do not ever make this man mad!!! You will be sorry. His very proud of his work and he is very dedicated to his patients. I feel so blessed to have found him when I did!

    Is your doctor on the good doctor list? Where are you located and what kind of doctor is he? I am always looking for a good one.
    Thanks, Sleeper01

    I put him on the Good Docs list myself! I live in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC. My doc's office is in Reston. He is an internist who specializes in CFS and FM.
