Hello goblen and welcome...WebMD does not allow users to provide doctors' names and other info about them to anyone. This is in the *guidelines*.

I would encourage you though to go to the NFA which you will find under *resources* and I think you can insert your location and it will give you the doctors who are in or close to your area. Another idea would be to call the nearest medical hospital and ask them if they can help you. (if you are close to a hospital that trains medical students)

I would also encourage you to review the info here under *tips* and *resources* and be sure and review the *member toolbox* as well....as this will probably provide some good *tools* that perhaps you have not thought of trying.

I would also like to know if you have gotten your Vitamin D level checked. This is really important to a lot of people these days. Low Vitamin D can cause some people to have additional pain and it can also affect other illnesses as well. It is a simple blood test BUT you must ASK the doctor to include it since it is not included in the normal blood work that the doctors do.

Learning all you can about FM and how to cope better with it will help you find *tools* that just might make a world of difference in the way you feel. This does take a trial and error process which does take time and effort. We are all different and what works for one may or may not work for you. You have to decide IF what you are doing is helping you.

I am one of the FMers here who has learned how to *control my FM pain* by taking vitamins and supplements and doing other things as well. It took me a long time to find the *right combination of tools* that made a difference for me...but I eventually found what works.

Hang in here with us and I am sure soon you will find something that will help you cope as well.

Take care and good luck.
