Do you see ones out of pocket or insurance only? Debating and learning how to approach this.
Within my insurance plan, when selecting a doctor, the list shows areas, like geriatric (important to older), heart, etc. that the doctor is more experienced in. I was fortunate that my primary care doc, new to me when my symptoms started, was able to recognize and has been treating me for 3 years. I am blessed with an understanding and patient doc who explains things.
I don't know where you are located, but the community mental health agency in my city is extremely understanding and knowledgeable about fibro and me/cfs (my primary diagnosis). If there is a community mental health agency in your area, you could try doing an intake there and see if you can get a referral. You can also point blank ask the intake specialist if they have any case workers who are familiar with chronic pain- you are allowed to screen them as they screen you. Best of luck. A helpful primary care provider is such a crucial resource. I hope everything falls into place for you.
