Will help not judge - Fibromyalgia

I need a doctor who will help, not send me on to the next doctor. I am so tired of being pushed around. I had been diagnosed with Fibro but then insurance dropped me and so did doctor that was helping me. So now I am lost on where to go and in pain. I am close to Chattanooga, so any referral would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry sweetie :( your best bet would be to find a good PCP who is going to take care of you and find a reputable place for you to find pain management. To be honest, you don't want to go to these places that get shut down because they not only leave you hanging but will hand you a bunch of meds you don't need and you will end up being immune to the lower doses and you can't go any further up.
If you are serious about having pain management take the proper routes, have your medical records and IF you do happen to have more than two Dr's be prepared to explain why. Look on the Internet at reviews the potential Dr has. Don't go to anyone with negative feedback. Find someone who is willing to listen and treat their patients fairly. You can see this in their feedback.
But most importantly remember that pain management is a sucky road to be on, but if you are in REAL pain and need REAL help its out there if you follow the right path.
Good luck to you sweetheart.

If you do find somewhere willing to help instead of passing you around, please post back. I also am dealing with the same situation and i am fed up with being tossed around and dealing with doctors who don't care nor understand what torture fibromyalgia is daily. Good luck to you also, when i find somewhere i will repost also. If you don't mind my asking did your doctor drop you because insurance did? And did insurance drop you because of the fibro?

I'm in the same boat. Dr. David Rankine in the Erlanger Medical Mall has worked really hard and helped me more than anybody.

I have recently found a dr. In chattanooga that I think is going to help me with all this pain. Dr Elizabeth Simpson at chattanooga arthritis in hixson. She has ran test and is trying different meds. She is the 1st dr that I have been to that hasn't acted like it is all in my head. I'm pretty sure I have fibromyalgia and know I have celiac. She doesn't want to give me a diagnoses until she is 100% sure because of insurance! I hope you find someone to help you.
