Are there any other specialty doctors that are recommended besides a rheumatologist?

      People with lupus may need to see any kind of doctor, really. That’s because lupus can affect any organ of the body. I saw a urologist for years for bladder disease. Then rheumatologists and neurologists. Ive had skin issues and have needed to see a dermatologist. I have trouble with my periods, so my gyno is also involved in my lupus care. Oh and I am hypothyroid, so an endocrinologist as well. Ive also been to gastroenterologist to treat stomach ulcers, and ENTs for sinus problems. I think that’s all! Lol. So yes, any doctor really but I would say rheumatologists and neurologists are most common. Oops and I forgot - Infectious disease doctor for mouth ulcers!
