Welcome Aboard Misskiki. Being In Fl Makes It A Little Hard To Suggest A Doc But Try Your Search Engine. Punch In Doctor, Ky And See What It Says And Go Form There. Most Doc Searches Do Have Specialites You Can Type In For A More Exsensive Search. Use The Internet To The Fullest. It Will Take Time Be Be Patient. You'll Find One At Least You,ve Found Something That Works. Not Great But Works Matt

Welcome to the board Misskiki. Call one of the hospitals near where you will be living and ask for their physician referral and tell them you are looking for a doc who treats fibromyalgia and if possible a pain managment doc. Even if they give you the name of a gp or rhuemie that treats fibro, they can refer you to a pain management doc. Try to get the copies of your records from your current docs to take with you, that may help when you find a new doc.

Re: kentucky dr needed

Welcome Miskiki,

I have moved a lot so I know your frustration and fear. As Glojer said, take all your medical records and tests, it shows that you are serious about your care and you will have all the records about your meds also.

If your doctor is willing to refer you that could be a great thing. He obviuosly is a caring doc and was willing to help you. I would try and put a little trust in him and use his refferals. It also is going to look good with any doc you go to that your present doc is referring you to them. Shows you are not drug seeking since you have your records and your docs ok. I have had the luck of a doctor writing an introductory letter, I do not know if that is done anymore.

Keep us posted honey on how you are doing.

Peace and love, Hangin
