    HAVE ANY OF YOU BEEN TO THE MAYO CLINIC? IF SO HOW DO YOU ARRANGE IT AND DO YOU GO FOR ONE HEALTH PROBLEM OR ALL OF THEM THAT YOU HAVE? MICKEY HAS FM, CHRONIC PAIN, DIABETIES, DISC PROBLEMS, PROSTATE STUFF, OA, NEUROPATHY, SEVERE REOCCURING DEPRESSION, OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APENA, ANXIETY, HEADACHES, INFLAMATORY RHEUMATIOD TYPE ARTHRITIS (THAT IS WHAT THE RHUMEY CALLS IT) AND OTHER STUFF.

    Hi---I certainly would cover all bases while there. After all the body must work as a whole. Part of the problem is that we often see so many "ologists" that no one puts the whole picture together.....It would be interesting to see if one could be under the auspices of one doc with all the specialists contributing to he or she....for a final compiling of data, for diagnoses, and treatment, from their findings and suggestions.

    Sometimes its hard to envison the picture before the interlocking pieces are put together.

    I would make sure everyone he sees has a full list of his symptoms, complaints, and previous diagnoses. You two, are looking for wellness and it must encompass all of these.

    Please keep us updated. Best wishes, LL

    OHHH I forgot something. I think I remember that Mayo Clinic has its own website. I know at MD Anderson, in Houston they will let you self refer...Mayo might let you do the same, check their website. If not, you will need a physicians referral.

    Hi,

    I've been to the Mayo Clinic...it is a wonderful facility with world class staff. Please read my previous message where I describe my whole situation. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you may have if I can.

    I've done the fibro program there too and can talk about that some.
