Do you see a Rheumatologist, a Neurologist, a Psychiatrist, a Pain Management Specialist, or another type of doctor for the treatment of your Fibromyalgia?
@A MyFibroTeam Member I really like the passion that you showed in your note. We have to take charge of our a health and continue learning, asking questions, advocating for ourselves and, if necessary, see a different doctor and leave the practice that is not helping you. I think you are right on track!!
I see all of those except a psychiatrist. I am lucky because my husband is a psychologist and really is helpful. In addition, I have been to the cardiologist when I developed a heart murmur and the ophthalmologist for dry eye and eye pain!! Fibro is the gift that keeps on giving!!!
Who Hoo! I, too, get lots of information on this site and I have personally purchased hemp salve, magnesium lotion and magnesium spray and a quell unit and a cranio cradle which helps with the tender spots. I keep trying too!!

I am so sorry that your general practitioner won't send you anywhere else because there "is nothing they can do"! That's horrible!! There's lots that can be done to help EASE the pain (and many other ailments that come with Fibromyalgia). If I were you, I'd either call around and see which doctors will see you without a referral or find a new general practicioner. I'm so sorry that your doctor has been like that! 😕
Thank you to everyone who has answered already! I'm looking at seeing which options are out there for me to help me on my journey. So far, I've seen a rheumatologist (x2) and my general practitioner, have done a sleep study, and have had a nerve and tissue test done on both of my arms. And countless tubes of blood for blood work. Every test taken is yet another one that says "nothing is wrong with you"; yet there is...
Exploring my options when it comes to receiving further help is never a bad thing, in my opinion! 😄
