    I didn't put ME because that doesn't even exist here...

    There's no speccialists here. They don't deal with any of the symptoms except pain.
    They're in fact pain doctors (and call themselves that). They only adress the cause in anti depressants and if it doesnt' work then they push you away the fastest they can.

    How can I reach a doctor that trully understand the case?

    My two hopes were Dr. Teitelmbaum or Dr. Murprhee since they do phone appointments.

    But they don't seem to be well recomended around here... or are they?

    In last case I would travel to see a doctor... but that would cost me all my money and it could only be done once so I could would have to hit the bulls eye... I don't think it's the best option...

    Thx everybody

    Sigh. Same story here in my country. I have seen 30 doctors in two years and a half. 29 of them told me i had depression and stress. One of them gave me a fibromyalgia diagnosis, cymbalta and goodbye.


    I know how hard it is to find a doctor that is willing to work with you in our countries, but i recommend you to try first, specially because going abroad without insurance is really expensive. I had the option to see Kenny De Meirlier, and i was willing to pay the cost, but now i think a can get a propper diagnosis here, and covered by private insurance.


    I hope you find a good doctor that really helps you. Greetings from a southamerican fellow.

    Dr Enlander maybe for a Skype consultation? and I don't know if she still does but Dr Klimas also used to do Skpe Consultations.

    Really sorry to read that you have no one to see in your country.

    Hopefully others here will have some other better ideas for you.
