drdryland.com is the website.....he is a rheumatoligist who is in my area who although his website claims there is a cure, he is a powerhouse of information I have seen him a few times, he is worth what he costs to see, he has written a book on FM, he has had FM himself, he goes all over the US doing focus groups and speeches, he is more then just a doc in who beleives he is truly an FM advocate and supporter! He has done studies and is very fond of a medication called mirapex that he beleives can almost eliminate symptoms, the problem with the medicine is it just recently became approved for RLS(which many of FM people suffer from as well)and Parkinson's, most insurances don't want to pay for it, it has extremely undesirable and quite freaky side effects with some people(I being one of them)Dr.Dryland does not like to hear anything ill of using mirapex. Anyways check it out it's worth the time, it has alot of info on it
