    I am desperate! I have been dealing with what I thought was fatigue related to hsv1 (recurrent nasal.) I've been on Valtrex for 5 years. I'm losing the battle. I do meet criteria for CFS . Should I go straight to an expert or try someone locally? Arkansas is in short supply on docs enterested in this subject. I can afford to go anywhere. Any recommendations? Please help. I'm sitting here after a 5 day 'bout' of this wondering how I'll cope at work tomorrow. Thanks

    Click on doctors under the community tab. See who is listed for your state as a good doctor on the list. I did this and found a doctor in Chicago who is taking my fibro pain seriously! I've also gone to a FFC for testing. See if there is one near you. Fibroandfatigue.com

    When I have to find a doctor I get out my trusty provider list and start calling. I ask the receptionist if the doctor has patients with xxx (FM, etc). It has been my experience they'll tell you right away if they don't want to mess with it.

    Take care
