Muscle and Joint pain

Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville does have a Rheumatology department. I have Poly Myalgia. I have had it for 14 years. About 12 years ago I was in a study through May Clinic/Rochester. Since I bought a vacation home in Florida I have been going to the Jacksonville Mayo. If you want to go there, call the clinic directly and tell them you want to make an appointment with the Rheumatology department. It's as simple as that. I don't like prednisone, but I have learned to live with it and all of it's side affects. And, lastly, a simple SED test is used to diagnose poly myalgia.

Thanks for your reply. The referral department for Flagler Hospital in Palm Coast who was getting the appointment for me called me to tell me there was not a Rheumatology Department at Mayo. I must admit I was shocked to hear this and had planned to call them directly just to satisfy my curiosity. I have decided that I will take the prednisone to get some relief from the pain. Thanks again. Fran
