Fibromyalgia Specialist

    If you are not one of the lucky few whose primary doctor is knowledgeable about fibromyalgia or at least willing to work with you and learn about it, you should look for a fibromyalgia specialist. Unfortunately, this is often difficult to do. Most fibromyalgia specialists are rheumatologists or physiatrists, (physical medicine rehabilitation specialists), but you can't assume that any given rheumatologist or physiatrist will be knowledgeable and helpful. Other fibromyalgia specialists may be internists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, or belong to other specialties.

    The best way to find a fibromyalgia specialist is to send for lists of recommended physicians from the national fibromyalgia organizations mentioned above, and also go to a local fibromyalgia support group meeting and ask for recommendations. It is best to do both because the doctor lists are incomplete. Those of you out there who already have good fibromyalgia specialists please let the list-keepers know. A fibromyalgia specialist will be able to perform a tender point exam (without which it is impossible to make the diagnosis accurately), will tell you that it is not possible to cure fibromyalgia but that most patients can be helped substantially, usually will not order a large number of tests, will recommend treatment similar to that described above, and will seem to enjoy treating fibromyalgia.
