Could that be Dr Christopher Jenner? I think he's supposed to be a good doc, but I don't know if he knows much about Fibro,

Sorry i cant help either, since being ill i have been patronised and made to feel stupid by most doctors, i have been told things like, "your depressed therefor tense and thats whats causing you pain, take these tablets and come back in a month, oh and think of happy things!!!
Even my specialist smiled and said you have fybromialgia, take these (gabapentin) and come back in a year!!! I had never heard or the condition before. So i am slightly anti-doctor at the moment and have just given up on them.... I know this wont help you much but i do hope you find a good one soon...
Best wishes.......Kerry.x :)

Seem's to be a shortage of good fibro doctors.
I live in North Northumberland and although my gp is very supportive there is no 'specialist' I can see. Newcastle is the nearest city to us and I was originally diagnosed by a ms specialist there who told me he knew immediately I walked into his office that I had fibromyalgia as I walked just like his partner who had it. He could not offer any treatment though and ten years later I still don't know of a specialist close to hand.
Good luck in your search.
