I'm sorry about all your troubles. Fibromyalgia is a complex disease and many doctors are not effective at treating it. You might try the National Fibromyalgia Association - they have a large list of FM groups and I'm sure there must be some in your area. You might want to contact them to see if they can recommend a good FM doctor in your area.
Pain.com also is a program you can search to find pain clinics in your area. Good luck!
On the north side of Milwaukee I was going to Milwaukee Pain Treatment..Dr David Stein. He does prescribe narcotics..I was getting Vicodin from him and eventually got Oxycodone from him. His website is: MilwaukeePain.com (414-257-4673).
I have been diagnosed with Fibro as well...it is a miserable condition...I also had to stop working and am home most of the time.
Good luck to you.
I just came across this and I'm in the same situation trying to find a good doc for the same reasons along with a bad back I had surgery on. I also live about 30 miles north of Milwaukee and the Doc I am seeing is tapering me off everything, and the pain is getting out of control. I realize this post is old but I'm hoping someone can still help!! Thank you
