The Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Centers?
7 Replies

Hello ladies (and men),

I'm curious if any of you have gone to a Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center? They seem to take a different approach (holistic and hormonal and virus's). I'm curious if you have looked into this what your experience was?

I'm thinking about going if my Nuerologist says everything is fine with me.

Here is the link:

Thank you.

I have not gone to any of these centers but I have seen some other posts about them in previous years. From what I remember, they will not tell you what your treatment plan is going to cost. Personally, I would have a big problem with that. Based on what I've read, I think that they would only duplicate what any decent rheumotologist would do with some prodding my a knowledgable patient. Take care.

For a very good source of information about bio-indentical hormones and other treatments or approaches to Fibromyalgia go to Amazon and look for books by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum. You'll save a lot of money instead of going to the FMS & Fatigue Centers...

Hi chucksusanandgrace

I have not been to the centre but have made inquiries awhile back, what I got was a salesperson answer my questions, so I was very much disapointed when I was not allowed to speak with someone who treated the patient.

A long story short, they may give you a price, anyway they did for me (the all inclusive price) way too much for what they are doing. Second thing is, after lenghty calls back to finally get answers that I could enditify with I found that my chiro could do the same for much less.

I am currently seeing a Dr at the Fibro and Fatigue Center in Bellevue, WA and couldn't ask for better care. The Dr looked at me the first visit and said "We will fix you" and I truly belive he will. It is pricey, but I think my insurance will cover most of it. They started me on IV infusions the first visit and did blood work that came back the next day! My body was so deficiant in many things so the got me started on supplements and hormones. I have had my thyroid checked at least 10 times in the last 6 years and it always came back in normal range, not this thyroid was pretty much not working! I was floored. I can call my nurse at any time and she will answer any questions that I have and if she can't she will ask the dr and call me right back. I would recommend this clinic to anyone with fm. I live 2 1/2 hours away and have to go once a week for the IV, but to me it is worth it.

They cost a fortune. If your insurance covers it you are lucky but they don't take insurance. I spent thousands and not really impressed with the results. You are at first, but it wears off when you realise how much you need to spend.

My mother went there and spent 10K over years. She didn't get better; she got much worse.

They do a ton of bloodwork and then say that if you have any slight abnormalities that treating those will make you well. However fibromyalgia and CFIDS have not been linked to any specific abnormality or deficiency. It's the old theory that correcting imbalances is a cure for CFIDS when we still don't even know what causes this disease. I know someone who went there, spent at least a thousand dollars and came home with a sleep formula she could have gotten from a health food store.
