Ok, maybe I will get someone to answer this one! Either no one in Central California gets CFS, no one on this board lives in Central Cal or there are no good CFS docs here, because I have asked a few times if anyone around here has a good doc for CFS and no one answers other than someone told me to look at the good doc list which is very outdated. I called the only central coast MD on the list and the number is disconnected. PLEASE, PLEASE, if you live anywhere near Santa Barbara, Monterrey, Fresno, Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, etc, please let me know if you have found a doc who is familiar with CFS and knows of the Cheney and Montoya or others studies. The only docs I have met here all still believe CFS is not a real illness and tell me to exercise or try other antidepressants. They don't listen when I tell them that I was an avid runner when I got sick and exercise makes me worse. Does anyone know of any good doc on the west coast-I will even go to palm Springs, Las Vegas or Phoenix or somewhere if I have to to find someone who is familiar with these studies. Please??
