Latest Poll - Are You Having Trouble Finding a Good Fibro Specialist?

In recent years, more and more Rheumatologists (arthritis specialists) are deciding NOT to see fibro patients anymore. There are a few obvious reasons for this.

(1) There are too few Rheumatologists for the rapidly-growing population of elderly with some form of arthritis pain.

(2) It has become clear to them that they don't do much for fibro patients, especially since many specialists only see them once anyway.

(3) Research has clearly demonstrated that fibromyalgia is much more a neurological than joint or muscle disease.

(4) Recent American College of Rheumatology criteria for diagnosing fibromyalgia have done away with the tender point examination; all that's needed is for the patient to answer a few questions.

What I want to know from you is: How much trouble did you have or are you having finding a GOOD fibro specialist (e.g., one who believes you and is trying different things to help you feel better)?

So please answer my poll on my website home page. To get to my website home page and answer the poll just click HERE

  1. I have not seen any definitive research that fibro is neurological. I am not so sure why you are portraying that. The ACOR recommends a question series regarding pain on top of the pressure point test.

  2. Obviously you do not have FMS and have no clue. It is neurological as well as many other things.

  3. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from fibromyalgia , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered fibromyalgia in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always complain of joint stiffness, and he always have difficulty falling asleep . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to fibromyalgia . I never imagined fibromyalgia has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. fibromyalgia has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098765@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story
