Whether you are newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome or Unrelenting Fatigue or are researching your symptoms, the selection process for a physician can be a struggle. Most traditional health care providers don't understand or know enough about these very complex diseases. If you are currently seeing a physician or specialist for Fibromyalgia , Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome or Unrelenting Fatigue , ask yourself the following:

----1.)---Does your doctor believe that FM, CFIDS and UF are prevalent chronic diseases? ----2.----
Does your doctor see a significant number of FM, CFIDS or UF patients? ----3.----
Does your see marked improvement in those patients by using outcome tracking and monitoring?----4------
Is your doctor open minded about treatment options other than prescriptions? -----5-------
Does your doctor rule out that your symptoms are related to menstruation, pregnancy, menopause or psychological problems? ----6-----
Does your doctor think he can treat your disease? -----7-----
Can your doctor specify how long it will take for you to feel improvement? ------
If you answered "no" to any of these questions, your current physician may not be your solution. Your trust and confidence in any physicians' abilities are paramount to success. Good Luck!!
