    Anyone have information on a good rheumatologist in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek/Grand Rapids (MI) area? I need one who is familiar with ME/CFS and related ailments and who preferably won't object to disability paperwork, if necessary. Most of the docs I've looked at have either been ruled out by personal experience, negative general reviews online, or negative reviews here. Of the few left, I can't find anything good or bad about their attitude towards CFS. I don't want to have to go through yet another evil doctor (or two or three) before I get someone good, compassionate, knowledgeable, and sensible who can give me a diagnosis and a treatment plan that actually works instead of throwing psych. meds in my general direction and hoping I go away...
    Oh, and for those who used to see Dr. Timothy Swartz, the South 11th Street office is no longer taking patients with chronic fatigue, chronic pain, or fibro.
    Jazakallah Khair and Thank You!
    :D

    Are you still seeing Dr. Katz and are you still happy with his services. Does he treat you for fibro, CFS or both? I'm looking for a specialist in CFS.

    Dr. Brewer is NOT taking new patients and will give NO referrals. I saw Dr. Simon and he is an egotistical sob with a terribly run office. I was seeing one of the other drs there one day and Dr. Simon barged in to see what the dr I was talking to wanted for lunch. This is only one of many bad examples. I am looking for a dr in the Kansas City area who specializes in chronic fatigue syndrome.

    I saw Dr. Driscoll the summer of 2012. I spent around $3,000 out of pocket as she is an Integrative Medicine dr and insurance does not cover. I did 20 visits of this brain wave technique that is supposed to decrease your pain. Those 20 visits cost about $2,200 and I was still taking narcotics for pain. I couldn't afford any more. I really liked Dr. Driscoll but you need a lot of money for her services. I am on disability and not even eligible for Medicare until Feb 2014. I'm paying $739 a month with a $5,000 deductible just to have insurance. Dr. Driscoll did a lot of bloodwork and put me on a no dairy, no egg, gluten free diet for 3 months. I saw no difference. She recommended supplements. Her first visit costs $495.

    You might try acam.org - website for integrative medicine doctors. There's a search feature near the top of the page under "health resources". It's not all-inclusive by any means. An IM doctor I used to see is no longer on the list, although he's still an IM doctor. But it might be of some help -

    Thanks Mary. Unfortunately I've already tried them--the only listed doctor who deals with rheumatology is not an MD, and I don't have authorization for that. I'm working through the VA system and have permission only to see a civilian rheumatologist.

    Still looking...
    I can't possibly be the only individual in southwest Michigan who needs a good rheumatologist who's actually an M.D. and can help with CFS (NOT fibro) who hasn't stopped taking patients.

    I recently moved to Akron, Ohio and I am searching for a new fibro doc. I have no insurance, but any suggestions or names of doctors near here would be help ful! I'm getting desperate!

    No Akron info here, BUT, from the very beginning which was 1999 with the FM dx, I've NEVER seen an MD for the fibro... I research all supps and talk to all on the board here for assistance. Unless, you want to take the pharma drugs, I don't think any conventional MD can offer assistance with FM....The pharma drugs "pushed" for FM by conventional docs are: Cymbalta, Lyrica and Savella which were all developed for other issues and then pushed for FM people. And you end up with all the side effects from these and work with withdrawal from them...I've seen it all here.

    Thyroid is critical and many docs don't give patients the help that is needed anyway.....

    Vit D and magnesium are critical and I love grape seed ex for so much of what is going on in my body systems. Just my 2cents on FM doctors....
  17. tayangel829

    tayangel829 Member

    I am currently taking lyrica and cymbalta. I also tske some other drugs for bipolar 2 disorder. I have also tried many different supplements in the past. My biggest issue is that my previous dr did not believe in prescribing any pain meds ( not even non-narcotic) I want to find a dr near here who understands that sometimes pain meds are needed . Somedays I wake up and can hardly move. I'm extremely frustrated : (

    I have a very hard time too, stiff and lots of pain and I'm much older I'm sure...Advil works pretty good for me and I take 3 stomach protectors (all supps) to keep my stomach in good order....I also take no more than 3, 1/2 vicodin per day, this is all since hip replacement 3 yrs ago.... I'm sure our issues are majorally different but this is what I choose to do, wish you luck in finding a doc, again thyroid is so overlooked for so many. jam


    And sleep is so vital, I have a sleep combo I worked long and hard for my body, and it's
    worked for a lot of years, but lately I'm ending up with more pain, age I'm sure is a factor
    in my issues.

    Another thing I've done for a lot of years is higher doses of MSM powder in water 3 times per day, this calms the pain for me. I've tried so much but resist the drugs, we all choose what
    we feel "may" work. I know a couple from a FM support group who found cymbalta to help, but again not my cup of tea.
  19. tayangel829

    tayangel829 Member

    Thank you for your quick response. As I said I take meds for fibro, bipolar, and an essential tremor. I am in my 30s but was diagnosed at the age of 11 or 12, so I've been taking various meds for more than half my life. My original dr retired and I have yet to find someone as good as he was. I moved from Cleveland to Akron recently so I'm just doing some research so I don't end up with a quack lol. Btw, my thyroid has been checked and is normal. On the other hand I'm hypertensive and have an extremely fast heart rate. I was put on a beta blocker. Anyway, I'm still hoping someone on here can help with a referral! Lol
