Fibromyalgia specialist???

I would really appreciate it if anyone can give me the name of a true fibromyalgia specialist inthe UK, I've been diagnosed for well over a year possibly two, the docs in southwest Cornwall have reached as far as they can and helped a great deal. I do however need more info this whole disability has taken control my life and no matter how hard I fight I can't seem to get the better of it!

  • I feel exactly the same as you. How can something so deevastating and debilitating just happen to you. Then with no explanation you have, to learn to live with it.

    I have never seen a fibro specialist I; know other people have though maybe they can tell us their opinion.

  • would Exeter be a hospital you could get to ?

    my cousins daughter has lupus and she sees a consultant there not at Bristol which is much closer to her , I realise Lupus is different but its an auto immune disorder so he may ahve come across it x

  • Thank u both, Exeter is achievable, could u find out his name as my gp said he could refer me to anywhere in the country, it's definitely worth a try. Thanks again irisjoy. Tiddylf it's about time we counted as citizens and not just the 'oh get on with it' category where are our human rights? Sorry rant over,! :P

  • Hi,

    You could also try Dr Selwyn Richards of Poole Hospital (Dorset) - I have attached a link to his website, I have FM and RA, he has a special interest in FM.
