Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry I don't know any in your area.....but I will suggest you also look to connective tissue disorders .....I have one that was mis-DX'd as fibro.....and I also have some auto immune issues as well....weird but they seem to go hand in hand..
I did find this link to help you research Drs for your area - http://www.lifescript.com/doctor-directory/condition/a-autoimmune-disease-tx.aspx
Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry to hear you are having all that pain....is it due to the Fibro?... My mom has that and I know how it can really affect not only how you feel but what you are able to do/get done which can also affect your mental outlook.
Praying you feel better soon
A TENS unit is a thing that delivers electrical stimulation to your muscles via a small box and 4 pads that you place on your skin. The electrical stimulation just feels like vibrations unless you turn it up to much then it can be a bit painful. It distracts from the pain by giving your nerve endings something better to do. You can get your doctor to order one. It really helps a lot for any type of chronic pain. You can get one through your physician. The hardest part is where to put it first. It does have some serious risks such as if you put it on your neck it could collapse your throat or if on your chest it could interfere with your heart. But for the back and legs it is wonderful! Hope that helps.
