Default Re: Looking for help and advice for my Fibro

Hi, Sheila, after doing some research, I have found different things:

1. Education and therapeutic programs offered to Fibromyalgia patients, covered by OHIP, referral is needed from your family doctor. It is in Newmarket which is near the place I live.

2. A few Fibromyalgia doctors, they are all in Newmarket, I will call them one by one tomorrow in order to find out whether they are covered by OHIP.

3. There is a Fibromyalgia doctor, he is quite well known, he wrote books about Fibromyalgia, I read his book and personally I agree with his approach to deal with Fibromyalgia. I called his clinic this afternoon and found out that, mostly, it is not covered by OHIP. He would be good but would be expensive. His clinic is in Thornhill near Markham.

4. I can also ask my friend's doctor, he is elderly and has experience, to see whether he treats Fibromyalgia or not. This one is covered by OHIP and is also in Thornhill.
