Thank you, dcloutier! I too had a fantastic doctor for many years but he retired. I will be seeing a new internist (that is what my former doctor was) tomorrow. I know it is important to establish a relationship with one's doctors but, there are physicians out there who don't always acknowledge Fibromyalgia as a real condition. That is difficult for all of us. Because for us -- it is very real.Hi foggy! I'm new here too! Hope you find some people to connect with here. Good luck finding a new doctor, I know how frustrating that can be. I've struggled for YEARS with that! Got amazingly lucky when I moved to Chicago. Picked a family doctor close to the house, based the decision strictly on location for lack of a better option, and found an amazing doctors who's helped with referrals and medications tremendously! I wish the same luck for you!
