A question for BFSers:
What type of doctor or medical professional (or non medical) have you found to be the best sourse of information/support. For example, general practioner, nuerologist, internist etc., or other areas of healthcare. In other words, someone who knows what this is all about...if that's possible.
I would love to hear your input, experiences.
Thanks!

I actually find my GP a better source. Most neuros tend to classify it as benign and then leave you hanging. I am able to follow up with my GP on a more regular basis and he trys to help from all angles whether to treat the symptoms and or the anxiety that comes with it.

My neurologist was very helpful, mainly in ruling out ALS, MS, etc. but didn't come up with a diagnosis. It was my general practitioner who steered me toward the BFS diagnosis because he was diagnosed with it a number of years ago and he said my symptoms sounded similar to his. I have a follow-up with the neurologist next week and will see what he thinks of my GP's diagnosis.
