    I am so frustrated. I can't find a dr. that treats fibromyalgia in this area. There are a couple but they don't take medicare unless the patient is over 65. Can anyone make recommendations for a Dr. near Tulsa?

    I've never heard of a doctor not taking medicare because you're not 65. Assuming you are disabled ? I wouldn't think that it would make a difference, Medicare is Medicare, right ? Can you talk to someone and find out who is a provider ?

    I'm not trying to be downcast or anything, I obviously don't know much about how it works but there's got to be a way to get a provider list. I work in a physicians office, as a nurse, but my employer takes Medicare regardless of age.

    I probably wasn't much help, I guess I'm just not understanding this.

    Best of luck....
