Can Anyone Recommend A Fibro Specialist?

Can Anyone Recommend A Fibro Specialist?

Can anyone recommend a doctor who either specializes in or is at least knowledgeable on Fibromyalgia. I live in Charleston, SC but am at the point that I would travel if I have to. I am getting desperate!!!

@A MyFibroTeam Member. Dr Neussbaum is the Rheumatologist at Roper that specializes in fibro. I'm going to make an appointment the first of the year. The doctor I work for said he is very nice and very knowledgeable.

I did call Dr Harper, can't remember now what exactly they told me but I remember that I was not gonna be able to see him, I called back when you first told me. Damn memory giving me a hard time lately. I know I have called several Dr's that people have told me and I was either told they don't "really" treat fibro, just basic mild cases maybe, or gonna be retiring, I do know that I ended up not able to see them for one reason or another. I've wondered why people have said they see this Dr or that Dr but when I've called I never ended up seeing them. I apologize for my memory right now, tired and been really stressed at home and it's adding to the normal problem remembering stuff. Thanks though ladies, I know I have followed up on the ones who have been recommended .

For anyone that is interested - I see a fabulous rheumatologist who is compassionate and knowledgeable and who doesn't give up. His name is Dr. Frank Harper (East Cooper Rheumatology) in Mt. Pleasant. He's WONDERFUL! I've been seeing him for a long time (9+ years) and I owe my life to this man.

We may not die from it but some days I feel like I'm going to die. I'm going to find this guy and make an appointment in January when my insurance changes. Too many docs don't understand it or believe it is real. We need to keep sharing info to find the good ones.
