    I haven't been diagnosed with CFS or fibromyalgia, but I have a lot of illnesses that require that I see several different doctors. Many times I don't make it to the doctor...too tired to go. Anyway, I'm going to list my doctors by specialty:

    Endocrinologist
    Oncologist
    Pulmonologist
    Cardiologist
    Psychiatrist
    Neurologist (that I stopped seeing)
    Gastroenterologist (have been in to see him in awhile)
    ENT

    I have:

    Primary Care
    Neurologist (for genetic muscle disease)
    Infectious Disease Specialist (for West Nile virus & EBV)
    Hematologist (anemia and genetic blood disorder)
    Gastroenterologist (genetic liver disorder)
    Cardiologist
    Rheumatologist (for fibromyalgia)
    Gynecologist
    Physiatrist (pain management)

    It wouldn't be so bad if it didn't take 3-6 months to get in to see them!

    I haven't been in to see a gynecologist in over 5 years. I'm too tired to make an appointment or choose one.

    You, definitely, have a lot of doctor to see! I don't know how you manage it.
