How we can hijack the media, in four easy lessons
Love it, hate it, good story, bad story... the media are going to keep reporting on ME/CFS no matter what. But isn’t it time that we saw that coverage as an opportunity?

    We are new to the area and I would sincerely appreciate feedback from anyone who can recommend a physician in this area who has some knowledge and understanding of CFS/POTS, even if it is just someone you have heard of from others - MD, ANP, PA-C, naturopath, etc.

    Thank you!

    Cherlyn,

    Check out Dr. Karen Vrchota--http://www.karenvrchota.com/

    She is knowledgeable and understands CFS very well, but like so many good doctors what she prescribes for you may or may not help. She is thorough and dedicated.

    Best wishes,
    Sushi

    I would imagine that you have seen this site: http://www.co-cure.org/Good-Doc.htm ? Only 1 in MN, but perhaps you could travel, not sure of geography. Also perhaps you can check out the ACAM website? Hopefully people chime in to help you out!

    Check out the Patient Advocate. His CFS daughter lives in Minneapolis and might have some suggestions on his blog.

    I second the Dr. Karen Vrchota recommendation. She is wonderful. Top shelf. Knows what every other doc is up to and takes the best from all. Super kind.
