    Was hoping someone here could lead me to a place online that has an extensive list of good FM doctors or alternative doctors. I found one but the doctors listed were in the southern portion of Michigan and I cannot travel.

    My doctor has consistantly failed me even though he does alternative therapies, NOT ON ME. His nurses hang up on me like they did again today when I was trying to talk to them about going to a pain clinic.....long story. I don't deserve to be treated like I am being treated but I don't want to go fishing through 10 doctors to find they are worse than the one I had either.

    Any help please

    i don't live there anymore. still have family there and in st.ignace. i now how difficult it is to get a dr. in the boonies there. can't give you any reccomendations but looks like you already was given some good advice earlier.

    just saying i'm a michigander, who turned california, and i went back there end of june for 2 weeks and so glad i'm back here the humidity killed me.

    good luck

    ....the purple "doctor referral" tab at the top of this webpage? When you click it, you'll see a link to the CFS/FM Good Doctors List. There are a number of doctors listed in your state.

    Good luck in your search......wishing you well, nature

    I did see that tab and clicked it. All the doctors are down south from me. I know alot of us travel but it's a thing I cannot do at this time esp with winter coming in. I did find a naturopath nearby not sure if that type doctor can fulfill all my needs but will call them. Found the FCC in Detroit as well definately out of our financial ball park. Thanks for the tips everyone
