When should I call my doctor if I have fibromyalgia?

A Answers (1)

  • Fibromyalgia is a diagnosis of exclusion meaning that there are many illnesses and diseases that can appear to be similar to fibromyalgia. It is important to speak with your doctor to determine if you have any of these other conditions through an appropriate work-up, including a physical exam, blood work and possibly imaging. If you have already been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and your symptoms are not well controlled through regular exercise, good sleeping patterns, and in some cases, medications, it would be worth seeing your doctor to see if you can work together to improve the symptoms.
