I have been reading the posts for a few weeks now but have never written anything until I saw the reply from lolaseattle. I was looking for some information from someone that had been to the Fibromayalgia and Fatigue Center when I saw lola's. I am going to the one outside Seattle in Bellevue the first of January. I have not "officially" been diagnosed with either of these conditions but after going to several Dr's. and them not being able to find anything wrong with me (except saying I have human parvo virus) I felt I needed to go another direction. I have been dealing with fatigue since 2003 but since 2005 it has become much more pronounced along with other symptoms- like daily if overexertion etc. One step was acupuncture which I am not sure did anything and right now am going to a Naturalpath Dr. Too early to say about that one.
There are a lot of these centers around the US - 14 of them- so I am surprised that others online haven't been to them. They are expensive though but sometimes the cost doesn't matter anymore. You begin to reach for anything after a while. There are actually two centers in Seattle that I have found- one being at Harborview hospital connected with the University of WA but they have a 3-4 month waiting list because they only see patients twice a week half of the day!! So when I found out I could get into this one quickly it worried me a little. But if it has helped you lolaseattle I am not quite so leary.
You try to be posititve with this condition but it sure is difficult. So if others have tried any of these clinics I would appreciate hearing. Bebs
