Question Fibromyalgia Clinic

There's a clinic in Chicago specializing in fibromyalgia called the Paragon Clinic. I was wondering if anyone at this board has ever been there? I found out about it a couple of years ago but I kept putting off calling them. I've visited their website but I was wondering if I could find out more about them from a patient's point of view. If anybody has any information on the clinic (or any other clinics in the Chicago area), it would be greatly, greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Kiki: They have a website. Just do a search for their clinic and there will be all kinds of info on it there.

Goodluck.

P.S. Oh geez, I guess I jumped the gun a bit. I see you HAVE visited their website! Sorry.

Re: Fibromyalgia Clinic

Molly -- I've never heard of any other fibromyalgia clinics in the US other than this one. Actually, I was quite shocked to find out they had one anywhere, much less in my area. I hope you have a good doctor in your area.

And thanks for your help, tk! I was just wondering if there was anyone who might have visited the clinic -- they say they've had people from all over visit them...I might check them out anyway because they are actually covered by my insurance. I was really interested in the Paragon Clinic because my regular doctors have been of little use to me. Ah, well... Anyway, thanks again!

Re: Fibromyalgia Clinic

How fortunate to have fibro clinic in your area. Type in fibromyalgia Chicago in search and several things will come up. I type for Christ Hospital even though I live in WI and have typed reports on several patients with fibro who were admitted for exacerbation of symptoms. Please keep us up-to-date on any treatment you receive in that area as it will be very interesting to hear how doctors who recognize fibro treat their patients. (TT)

Re: Fibromyalgia Clinic

[FONT=Garamond]I hope no one has seen this already but there are tons of links on fibromyalgia at this site. There were so many links that I didn't even begin to go through them but there might be more info on clinics around the country.
