    Hello everyone,

    I just joined the group today. I am 33 years old & have been searching for the reason for my chronic pain for over 3 years now. I finally found the right pain management doctor who after seeing me only once pinpointed it to FMS.
    I also appear to have disc herniations in my neck & some issues with my left arm & shoulder and RLS to name a few.
    I am glad to have a good caring doctor who is willing to go the distance with me.

    My husband just finished med. school & is hoping to start his residency soon. So, please know I can run questions through him if anyone needs an opinion or med questions.
    My husband is well read & well versed as well. & is willing to help. He is truly a good doctor.

    I am in IL in the Chicagoland area. If anyone is looking for a doctor in that area I would be more than willing to help as well.

    I hope to make lots of new friends & look forward to hearing from my new friends.

    love your new friend,

    Dawn, aka fungirl2100, aka doc's wife

    Fungirl2100(Dawn)...I've seen a few of your posts but didn't realize you were new until reading this. Just want to welcome you here. There is so much wonderful support here.

    Having a good doctor is such a big piece of the puzzle. I'm so glad that you have that. It's also wonderful that your husband's a doctor, too. I wish him the best as he starts his residency.

    My doctor (internist) here in Colorado is so great - he's on the younger side; his wife is a doctor, too - and they work together; etc. You can tell he is just passionate about what he does. It sounds like your husband's the same way.

    Looking forward to getting to know you more! --Tina
