I my name is Judith, I am a new member, I live in Québec city and I speak french, my English is "so so". I will try to write in English or I will use the translator. I have EM for 10 years (in my feet) and it's getting worst with the years. I have also pain when my feet and toes are to cold. Just standind up give me pain.
Hello again Judith. Alina here. So good to be able to read what you are saying! Thank you for doing that. I had no idea there was a translator button available here and I am a moderator!
I hope one of the doctors Mads recommended will work for you.Finding a doctor that knows or is willing to learn about EM is often a challenge. Just never give up. It took me forever it feels like but I am now under the care of a few wonderful doctors. None of them had any knowledge about EM but they were willing to read the research I brought in and experiment with the treatments recommended.
If you can't find an actual doctor that knows and treats EM a doctor willing to learn is another option but can be hard to find.
Forgot to tell you to look at the 'information for new members' pinned to top of discussion forum. You might want to print some articles off to take with you. Do remember to take photos and keep a pain diary. The more information and back up evidence you can take - the better.
Please let us know how you get on at your consultation.
Hello Mads, my daughter is having difficulty getting a diagnosis by a doctor who is familiar with EM, we have a good cause but her doctors are hesitant since they have never seen. Could you let us know if there is a doctor in the Ottawa area? Thank god we found this support group.
