As Mimi said...look to the right hand column and find the section called resources...and find the member toolbox post. It has lots of helpful suggestions..Also like Mimi says...have your Vit D. checked. That can make a big difference.
As far as finding a doctor...You can go to the website...www.fmaware.org for a list of doctors in your area. Like Jim said...there is help available through the VA...you just have to be persistent, I do believe. Many of the doctors that treat fibro are Rhumatologists...so you can call offices of Rhumatologists and ask if they treat fibro. Like someone said..another suggestion is to call your insurance and ask them for a referral.
I do suggest you also start taking some good vitamins...a good multi, a good B-100 Complete, D , magnesium and omegas are all good for us...Start doing some stretching and taking good care of yourself...
