I moved here to Charleston, WV last summer from Michigan. I had good Dr.'s their. But I just couldn't take another cold winter. Now I'm not able to find a Dr. who will except medicade and that treats FM as well as the Migraine headaches I have suffered from for many years. I'm on disability because of the Migraines and receive medicade, but so far in this state I feel like they look down on ya if you have medicade as if I were getting welfare or as if I were some kind of drugie. I havew no problem taking a blood or urine drug test when ever they want, I just need to find some kind of help. I have been off my meds for my Migraines and FM for months now and the past three days Ive been in bed and not able to go any where or do anything. I hate having FM. It hurts just to be touched. Is there anyone who know's of a good Dr' that would see me?View Thread
Thanks everyone! I have had my Vitamin D checked in the last state I was in. It was Low so I do take that. As well as several other Vitamins that I read would help. I will contact the clinics today because now my walking is even more dificult. I have kids to take care of and just cant go around in all this pain. There has to be some kind of treatment out there. I was Diagnosed in Michigan by several Dr.'s and they all agreed on it being FM. I Guess I may have to take a trip to the ER or medi center this week if Im not doing any better. Its so hard whaen I can hardly get out of bed due to all the pain in my back and legs. Thank you all very much.View Thread
