Who Treats You?

Hi All -
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia by a Rheumatologist however he refused to treat me & directed me to Psychiatrist. She prescribed Naltrexone (starting tonight) & I’m already on 2 other meds that that supposedly help with the pain. I also see a Naturopathic MD who prescribed an Anti Inflammatory diet & Tumeric.
I’m doing an infrared sauna, cupping, acupuncture, an anti inflammatory diet.
I think I’m doing everything right but is it normal for my Psychiatrist to manage my medication for Fibromyalgia? Who manages your treatment?

No that's not normal. Not all rheumatologists treat fibro. The one who diagnosed me did not. I would suggest you call around and find one who does. A pain doc treats me now.

Thank you so much. I’ve felt so isolated. You’ve made me feel so much better. 💜
