    Do any of you People in Mi happen to be a patient of Dr. Schwartz in Kalamazoo, and if so are you happy with the care you receive from him .
    My PCP doesn't really believe I will get any more help from a rhemy than from him, but I have to wonder, and I am feeling pretty desperate about finding something to help me feel better.
    Also has anyone used 5HTP and if so, have you had any positive results.
    Thanks everyone.

    I am in the Grand Rapids area. I can't really help you. I ahven't ever been to that DR. I have been to a Rheumy who supposedly speacilized in FM but he was a complete jerk just like my other Drs. The only Dr willing to help me is my Chiropractor. Since seeing him I have felt much better but I still have a long way to go. Good luck on you search for a good dr.

    Who is your chiropractor in Grand Rapids. I started going to one by the name of Dr. Tim Burkhart. He is supposed to be good with FM patients. He is real strong on supplements.
    Thanks for your help.

    Thanks Kim for bumping.
    I will be seeing my PCP tomorrow to ask him to do a Thyroid and adrenal testing.
    I know there is some help somewhere, will keep on looking.
