Jun 7, 2012 · Mayo Clinic's Fibromyalgia Clinic in Bones, Joints & Muscles

My daughter was scheduled for the Fibro Clinic. We met with the nurses and Dr. Fleming the first morning. Unfortunately she has a very bad reaction to Cymbalta and the withdrawal so they didn’t feel she was well enough for the class. The nurses and Dr. Fleming were good to work with. However I still can’t comment on the class. I had the same problem trying to find a review. We did do the one hour class at the Education Center at the main clinic. There we did get a copy of the book they use for the class. I don’t see any real new ideas that haven’t been in other books but we did not benefit from the discussions and the nurses input. So let me know what you think of the clas. Dr. Fleming thinks my daughter could benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She has also been referred to the Physical Therapy department to deal with muscle spasms that developed when she was going thru Cymbalta withdrawal. This sure is a frustrating condition to deal with! Good luck

The Rochester Minnesota Clinic has the fibro clinic. It is actually in one of St. Mary’s Hospital buildings. My daughter was not well enough to attend the classes. We did see Dr. Fleming at the fibro clinic. He sent us to see some other doctors at the regular clinic. We are still trying to come up with a plan.

Has anyone been to the Fibromyalgia Clinic at Mayo? My 21 year old daughter is scheduled to go in May and we are wondering if anyone found it helpful? My daughters fibro is very severe and so far the medications we have tried have not helped.
