Who is the best MD to diagnose Fibro. I have CP, have had 4 back surgeries, am in a downward spiral with depression. The doctors are helpful and I am sick of going to doctors for answers. My husband doesn't know what to say and I have two daughters who need me.

Have you seen a Rheumatologist?  They are the "specialists" who are supposed to be the best at diagnosing and treating fibro.  You could call around and ask if a particular doctor has lots of experience treating fibro before you make an appt. If you find someone who sees and treats a lot of fibro patients, I think you are more likely to get a proper diagnosis if it is fibro.
 
There are also lots of GP's and Internists who treat fibro.  Again, I would call and make sure that a particular doctor is familiar with fibro and treats a lot of fibro patients.
 
Good luck.
