    Looking for a doctor in southern California who will take my symptoms seriously. All doctors so far just want to put me on ssris until they find one that works.

    I do not do well on ssri but they insist it will help . I know better cause I've been on so many all with the same reaction of suicide attempts (not even thoughts but actual attempts) which they also don't take seriously. I prefer natural -ish supplements and vitamins.

    Need a doctor who will do correct lab work and not tell me I'm wrong with how I feel or what is and isn't working

    Hello Squirmy85,

    Dr. John Chia is in Southern California- Torrance to be exact. His specialty is Chronic Fatigue.
    Dr. Chia is brilliant and very supportive.
    Ive been a patient of his for several years. He's wonderful !!

    Hey there,

    I know how you feel i have taken SSRIs and had severe reacttions to them. This is a Chemical sensitivity assocoated with ME/CFS typically. I am now very cautious what I put in it.

    I highly encourage you to buy/download the Kindle Version of a book called:

    CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME: A TREATMENT GUIDE 2ND EDITION

    this will give you great insight into many prescription, alternative, natural and helpful lifestyle accomodations. I see a top Dr not Dr Chia but my Dr speaks highly of him.

    I believe OMI is in California as well.
