- DX FIBRO
Recently diagnosed. Looking for a specialist. Does anybody know of a doctor who specializes in fibro in Toronto to Ottawa or norther NY state?
Here is a guide to non-medication routes to take with fibromyalgia.I am not familiar with this forum software, although it may be a skin on something I am familiar. HOwever, I do not know if this is directed at me.
I imagined that a pain clinic is the place to go when experiencing pain, no?
I do not understand non-medication routes. Within the context of the pain clinic, it seems these are ways they address fibro.

I am not a doctor or anything, just a person who has lived with fibromyalgia for several years now and has done a lot of research and trial and error experimentation. What follows is just basics. There are a lot of variations. You will find your own versions of everything I say, as this is not a...www.fibromyalgiaforums.org
The pain clinic is ONE place you can go to address pain, not THE place. In my experience and that of many others, a pain clinic does not offer any of the non-medication things that can and do help millions of people with chronic pain. they may or may not recommend such things, but all they will actually do is offer medication. That is the only way they directly address fibromyalgia, because they do not have alternative practitioners on staff. Medication is generally not the best way to start with fibro. I recommend trying non-medication things first, to avoid side effects and possible addiction. And to see what y ou can do for yourself without depending on meds.
the term "alternative medicine" just means alternatives to "modern", mainstream medicine, which is increasingly dependent on the pharmaceutical industry, and only treating individual lab results, not the patient as a whole.but if "alternative medicine" worked, would it not just be called 'medicine'?
Alternative in this case only means not-the-established-western-medicine-way. Doesn't mean it is not medicine or that it doesn't work.I am sorry, but if "alternative medicine" worked, would it not just be called 'medicine'? Being autistic I have difficulty discerning between actual medicine, corporate pharma slavery, and "woo woo". I believe I need to learn more information before I can map out some criteria/parameters to internally create a grid for decision making.
My brain works like this too, often enough I need external grids for decision making.I am sorry, but if "alternative medicine" worked, would it not just be called 'medicine'?

Yes, I knew that person left. I wasn't actually replying to them.
