    Good luck I can't even seem to find a neuro urologist. You can call Vanderbilt Stallworth for information.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    Have you tried www.myelitis.org ... or tried Johns Hopkins in New Jersey (they have a centre for myeopathy) and may have a list of key doctors in each state?

    Specialists in Nashville, TN

    Thank you addiesue and lynnifer for your replies.
    My friend was stricken with TM when he was 21 it took a long time to be diagnosed and he has been run through the whole routine of "it might be this or it might be that so you need to go to this doc ,no you need to go to that one" so basically he is sick to death of docs in general but has no choice but to try and find someone who actaully knows something about this disorder and knows what to do about it. He is now 55 years old and so he is not new to the pain and suffering associated with it. He was diagnosed with MS recently also. Has unrelenting pain.
