Hello, After a year of being footballed from one useless doctor to another and self-referring to a bunch of "promising" doctors, I finally was recommended somebody who specializes in CFS and Fibro only (and - oh miracle - she was accepting insurance). So, I saw her today.... I told her about my symptoms (forgetting 30%, even though i had them all written in front of me, but i was too embarrassed to read, because i was convinced she thought i was mental, because i mentioned that one of the so called "doctors" suggested to see a psychiatrist in response to my complaints about chronic fatigue and pains after 3 months)... She told me that there're "many approaches" but for me she recommended the following: 1) acupuncture; 2) Biofeedback (which she is aware i can not afford and the insurance won't cover so it's off the list) 3) work with nutritionist from her office (even though i told her i'm fully aware what a well-balanced diet is and my diet isn't a problem, i just CAN'T EAT ANYTHING! period!) 4) Savella (another SNRI, even though i told her my body can't tolerate SNRIs and SSRIs). My question is, dear CFS sufferers (and please please answer because you're my last hope) did any of you meet doctors with such CFS/Fibro approach and was acupuncture helpful for you? I'm skeptical about it and i also suffer from OCD. I can't tolerate the very idea of needles being stuck into my body. I mean, if that was that simple wouldn't we all be cured? I feel so horrible after visiting her office though. Came home and literally dropped (not sure how long i slept), couldn't move, felt so exhausted. I have this crawling sensation all over me again. I hope i haven't picked up something additional from her office. (I know it doesn't make any sense, but those of you with OCD will know what i'm on about).
