Has anyone gone to Mayo Clinic?

    I am thinking of going to Mayo Clinic to see what they have to say. I have talked to so many people and alot of them have told me to get a second opinion, so why not go to the best? Some believe I really have MS and it hasn't shown up yet. I am beginning to doubt my diagnosis.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    I had two appts with Mayo and had to cancel them
    both. My brother lives near Jacksonville.

    Many here have gone and had nothing very good
    to say.

    I did speak to one woman from FLa who had
    FMS and went to Mayo and was diagnosed with MS.
    She told me three others were diagnosed with
    MS the same week.

    That's all I can tell you.

    I've thought about going to Mayo's here in Phoenix, with the exception of it being an institution for diagnosis I don't think its any better than other hospitals. I use to care for an elderly woman and her family insisted that she goes to Mayo's. Once she was assigned a room it was like any other hospital...neglectful.

    quite recently. I will try to find for you and bump it up.

    Iirc, for CFS they were not helpful.

    but for diagnosing or ruling out MS, they might be good.

    My friend with CFS went and they were of little help with the CFS, but they did find that his cholesterol was too low.
