A Rheumatologist I saw for my psoriasis refused to treat me because my immune system is a mess. I was thrilled someone finally saw this. She tried to get me a referral to a top guy in the county but my plan denied it and sent me to one of their peeps. I saw her yesterday and she is totally clueless about ME/CFS. She is running some labs but I don't have a lot of confidence that even if she finds something she'll know what to do. I'm going to appeal the denial. What I want to include is studies or something that will show that our immune system is vastly different from the general population, that numbers that most docs would see as acceptable are not, and that it takes a doc familiar with ME/CFS to interpret things. I know, not asking for too much right? I know the smart people here can head me to some links I can include. Thanks mucho.
