    I live in Charlotte (moving to Charleston) and am looking for a physician that handles CFS - or what type of physicans handle these cases. My primary care told me that CFS is just a symptom and not a disease - he won't help me. There is one physician here that actually specializes in CFS; however, he does NOT accept any insurance. charges 300 plus per hour with an initial visit over 3 hours and expects payment up front. I just can't afford that. What type of doctors handle CFS so that I can have it covered by my medicaid? Thanks for anyones assistance.

    cathkol:
    My rheumatologist handles both my FM and my CFS. He said since they are so closely linked: he might as well do both.
    It is worth it for me and he seems up on all of the latest work. I hope you find what you are looking for.
