    To those of you in the Western PA area, I wanted to let you know that there is a pain clinic in through UPMC that cater to fibromyalgia patients.

    I am just starting with it, but not sure if I can continue because the program (I think 6-8 weeks) asks that you be there 2x a week for 4 hours a day

    Program includes psychologist, PT and OT and information sessions on pain management.

    I have CFS and FMS and I told them I am not sure that I can handle being there for 4 hours at a clip.

    But I just wanted everyone to know that it is there, because I have had FMS for almost 20 years and never knew about this center

    It is in Shadyside through Dr Cheryl Bernstein
