    I called the only doc I could find in my entire city that would even say they treated people with CFS / FM or could diagnose... they said they did not have appointments for 6 months, so I left my name and FORGOT about them of course. But here at work I got a call that made my day!!!! I have been to so many doctors that won't even mention the words to me let alone diagnose me. I am not about to diagnose myself, so I am looking forward to someone familiar with this!!!!! Appointment is next week and this is the absolute first time I am looking forward to going to the doctor. Can't wait - hope I am not hyping myself up for nothing!! I am already getting 'prepared'.

    I TO LOOKED FOR EVER TO FIND A CFS DOC. WHEN I DID IT WAS 8 MONTHS TO GET INTO SEE HIM BUT WELL WORTH THE WAIT. HE VISITED WITH ME FOR 3 HOURS. WHEN I LEFT I FELT SO MUCH BETTER. MY FAMILY STILL DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT I AM SICK, BUT THEY WOULD NOT GO TO THE DOCTOR WITH ME EITHER. THIS DOC HAS ME ON A RETURN VISIT EVERY 6 MONTHS. HE IS IN KANSAS CITY MO. LET ME KNOW HOW IT WENT.

    I am so happy for you!

    I too waited for 4 months to see my fibro specialist and it was worth it. Not only does he treat FMS, he has it! It is wonderful to finally have a doctor who recognizes and treats pain (and is not affraid of prescibing narcotics). My GP is not willing to understand or treat me.
    Let us know how it goes,

    Glad to hear it is worth it to wait cuz this doc was hard to find!! There is only one doc on the good doc list for this state accepting patients!

    Please keep us updated. CFIDS is the more difficult of the two illnesses to treat. Good luck.

    Love, Mikie

    Shell,

    I'm so glad you found a doc who is willing to work with you. It makes all the difference in the world. Make the most of the appointment, since it sounds like this doc is one of a kind!
