The specialist who most frequently diagnoses and treats fibromyalgia is the rheumatologist, however, more and more family practioners, internists and neurologists are becoming knowledgeable about fibromyalgia. Often the best physician recommendations for your area come from local support groups where individuals share their own experiences. The National Fibromyalgia Association offers a support group directory
listing fibromyalgia support groups throughout the U.S., or check with your local library or area hospitals to find a group near you. If you have any doubt about whether a particular doctor treats fibromyalgia, call his office and ask before you make an appointment.
