I already have a diagnosis for fibromyalgia. Would it still be helpful to go to a rheumatologist? If yes, what do you think I should ask them?

      I found it helpful. I was diagnosed with only fibro at first and was dismissed by doctors when i complained that my pain was getting worse. My current rheumatologist is amazing and found out i also have RA. Even if you do only have fibro a good rheumatologist can find different ways to treat it more than a primary care doctor can.

      I have seen 3 rheumatologists. They all said they only Diagnos fibro and don’t treat it. The first one wouldn’t see me after confirming the fibro diagnosis. The second one was to investigate other stuff which they completely wrote me off and refused to look beyond the fibro diagnosis. The third one listened and agreed to test me for sjogrens for which I’m now being treated.
