Is there a way to tell if my doctor really knows anything about FMS?

Getting ready to see a new doctor

Before seeing a new doctor, gather the following information - Bring a list of all of the symptoms that you have noted in yourself. Don't just rely on memory – consult your books. Make a list of everything you have tried to relieve the symptoms, and which worked. Bring a list of all medications you are on whether or not they relate to your fibro symptoms, as well as a family medical history.
