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!
Thanks so much for the suggestions!
I feel for you, I have pretty much the same issues you do and have gone through hell trying to find a doctor that usnderstands my pain and condition for what it is and doesnt look at me like a drug seeker ive become depressed and look forward to bed everyday, i know of a dr that would probably treat you but hes in appleton. please respond it would be nice to talk, good luck !

I have terrible pain from a major car accident and just moved to milwaukee I
Need help finding a good pain doc in this area...thanks
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.
Im wondering if you found someone?? Thank you
I now go to Sethi Medical Clinic on 76th & Burleigh in Milwaukee.
Its kind of a hike from where I am but its totally worth it. I have a doctor that I LOVE! I've been a patient of his now for almost 2 years and he is wonderful! I've followed him to several clinics but this is his permanant clinic now.
Just make an appointment there & any doctor there will be able to help with your chronic pain
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
NO Problem! I have been meaning to get on here for awhile...
I suggest you open an account on http://eclinicmd.com/
I have been seeing the pain doc for Milwaukee area for awhile now & he is GREAT! You only have to see the doc every 4 months otherwise it is telephone convos for couple minutes each month confirming you're ok & doing better.
I would try that
Just out of curiosity, which Dr were you seeing? I also live north of Milwaukee and am looking for another Dr.
