    Hi...1st time to use message board. have fm and cfs. my depression is under control (finally!) but i still have bad
    flair ups...pain, brain fog, no energy...

    my family doctor has done everything they can to help me.(?) but i pray there's more help!

    seems to be no "specialists" in fm or cfs. any suggestions
    on where to go (dr.) from here? or what to do?

    any help or suggestions would be great!

    hope if did this right!!(message)

    I just had a sleep study done! Just haven't gone to 2nd apointment. (its 09/06) My study said I dont have apnea,
    but I do have periodic limb movement and im not getting past stage 2 sleep? hopefully there's something to help with these... I know a good night's sleep is a must ! I will check out a reumatoligist (sp!). I don't have to be
    referred. thank-you for your help!!

    Welcome to the baord and computer. I am a computer illiterate BTW.....

    It varies in my opinion whether you can find a rheumy who actually believes in FM too. Sometimes an osteopath may be more helpful. You need to check around and see. My rheumie who others love treats women esp. with fm/cfs like rubbish and totally disses the pain as being severe, he will say "well, IF there is such a thing as FM, then the pain is very mild ......."

    So good luck.

    A good FP may also help so long as they beleive.

    Love Anne
