Who should I see?

mgalis - February 25

I have not been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but based on the symptoms that I read about, I am almost certain that I have it. I have been to a rheumatolgist, endocrinologist, cardiologist, neurologist...I've been tested for RA, Lyme's disease, lupus, the works.... I've had EKG, stress test, nuclear stress test, thyroid tests, glucose tolerance tests, brain MRI, blood tests, ultrasounds. I have been told in all cases that everything is normal, so I am leaning towards Fibromyalgia. The thing is, not one of the doctors I've seen have ever made mention of it.
Can someone tell me who I should see to discuss a possible diagnosis? What type of doctor specializes in this disease or should I just speak to my PCP? I have been feeling awful for almost a year now and am anxious to find an answer.
Your input is appreciated!!

A rheumatologist, endocronologist, nuerologist or PCP are all capable of diagnosing you, if they are knowledgable. Most of the time your tests WILL be normal. Do you have a fibro support group in you area? They will be able to recommend a doctor who believes in fibro.

Thanks to both of you. I will look into a support group in my area for some direction. I need to put a name to what I am feeling so that I can move on and manage it. Thanks again!
