    i just made an appointment with dr charles alpert in jenkintown (which is a hike for me!) but he has fibromyalgia!!!! im so excited! its not til the 23rd but who cares right? i may actually have found a doc i can stick with! i am so freakin excited! sorry i just needed to let that out!! btw the zanaflex i am on is not helping...a little bit to relax but no pain relief and i think my body needs it after a week on it..if i dont take it after 4 hours i start to get a headache and shaky.. ok gotta get back to work...<3 Rachel

    I hope this new dr is able to help you! My doctor also suffers from FM (Dr. Mark Pellegrino). He's wonderful!! I'm anxious to hear how it goes for you, remember to give an update after your appt. Good luck!

    I hope he is all you are hoping for...and MORE!!

    Wish I could find one with CFS. It's so hard explaining some of our weird symptoms to someone who can't possibly understand.

    It would be really helpful when we find a good doctor, or one that has FM to perhaps post their name and location. I wonder if there could be a "board" set up for us with fibro to access good doctors?????
    GOod luck with your doctor and hope you get the help you so deserve!
  7. GREAT! So at least he should know how we feel. PLEASE let us know how it goes and what he recommends.

    Thanks for the replies...ya know just knowing that i have this appt has made me feel a little better. hope is its own medication. i saw a post asking for the name...it is dr charles alpert, abington pain medicine, board certified physiatrist. i will definatly let you all know how my visit goes..its not til the 23rd of april. im actually not feeling too bad today besides my leg feeling like its going to explode, not too bad. surprising because usually on my b-day (which is today) i am sick. lol. <3 Rachel

    That's a cause for celebration!!! I hate meeting new doctor's and knowing he knows what your going through, because he has been there, I'm sure is a big comfort! It will be here before you know it!!

    God Bless
