Question Is there a real doctor anywhere???

Does anyone know a diagnostic center or doctor in or around the Central Coast of California?

Been to all the quacks for 10 years plus with fibro and chronic fatigue and now worsening symptoms - crons like - and neurological and nausea and skin rashes - it is getting nuts. My wife suffers daily. Painfully and it is getting worse. All I get is run more inconclusive test (all the CBP and thyroid studies, all the rhume stuff, the rashes look like psoriasis but come back negative, she is developing neurological disorders - numbness, twitches, and I don't buy it is all diet - she had the lowest vitamin D reading my doctor had ever seen but it is as though her body doesn't absorb any nutrition - her body is hoarding everything - as if she is starving - I am so fed up with masking drugs - the gambit of heavy pain killers - the phony relief of these drugs while easing some pain - has done nothing to make it go away and I think made her condition worse - because you start to think you can live that way and no one seems to tie multiple symptoms together...we're think Standford but heard of Holtorf Clinic - but heard it is just like an earlier scam we went through where the quack was sure that his proprietary blend of progesterone rectally delivered would make all the problems go away - I can't believe the desperation that led us to that and the crazy hormonal imbalances it created that took more to work out...synthroid been there done that - and off it with a fully functioning RA or anything like does anyone know of anyone who actually does real differential and studies until you have a solution...HELP!

Re: Is there a real doctor anywhere???

Has your wife taken anything like Lyrica? Or has she just taken pain pills? It is not clear what she has taken. I go to a Pain Management Clinic and I don't take any pain pills, I won't take any pain pills. It took me 10 plus years to get diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but I feel I have a great Doctor. The Lyrica and Cymbalta treats the pain together, it does not take it 100% away, but I am functioning so much better now.

I have also heard of a Fibromyalgia center in Marina Del Rey. Maybe you can look it up.

Have you looked into Sansum Clinic in the Santa Barbara area - haven't been there myself, but some of my friends and family have been positive about their visit. Best of luck - seeing a loved one suffer is very difficult.

are u rich???

Dr. Paul Cheney is "the man" on this illness...I can't afford him so I am going to see Dr. Mazlen in NY I think...or Dr. Larry J. Sharp is another guy in TX I might try if it comes to that.

Read my recent post about TH2 vs Th1 cytokines
