    Can anyone give me the name of a doctor or doctors in the Marblehead/Salem area who is sympathetic to FM? My doctor gave up his practice to become a hospice doc full time. I'm left in the dark with a Dr. Waitekus who doesn't believe in pain meds for fibro. I've been on ms contin, effexor, nortriptyline, ibuprofen, soma, lorazepam and percocet as needed and had been doing pretty well. I've been able to work two hours/day outside of the house. He can't or won't believe that I could have pain on top of therse meds. I use the drugs very responsibly...never to get high or anything and I'm so humiliated to have to start again. Can anyone help me? I'd also try and get to Boston if there would be a doc for me. Thank you so much for your time.
