Does anyone have a Fibromyalgia doctor in Iowa that they would recommend? I was diagnosed with FM in 2013. I had a spinal fluid leak that I finally got help with this past July. I had an Igenex test for lyme done in January that said I should try again. I have another doctor that reviewed my MRI and said I have "mass effect on brainstem."

All of these have similar symptoms and/or can present like the others. My family doctor understands a little about FM because her sister has it but I need someone that is a true expert. Thanks in advance!

Msdiagnosed, we don't put doctors' names on the open forum but I do see you have an email address in your profile so members can email you if they know of a good doctor.

Meanwhile, see if there is a fibro support group in your area. They can give names. If you are near a teaching hospital, that is a good source. Lastly, if you get a name of a doctor, check them out at vitals.com and healthgrades.com. These give patient reviews.

I hope you find a good doc soon!
