    Hi ladies,
    I have a question. When you have flare ups (like I seem to be right now) who perscribes you the medicine? Pain Management doctor or your Rheummy?

    I was surprised my Rheummy didn't offer anything. Not that I WANT to take anything with my children here... just sometimes at night, just to sleep... I need something! Advil isn't helping!

    So who do I go to see for pain relief?

    Thx in advance!

    hi brandi

    I actually get my pain meds from my family doc.

    In past have gone to pain clinis they didnt work for me.

    some rheummys prescribe some dont.

    best of luck fighting pain wears you out. stay on top of it.

    I see pain specialist. I have seen him for 5 years now and he has saved me. If you need a pain doctor who is familiar with fibro you might ask here. Let others know which area you are in.

    Hi Brandi

    I go to my family doc, he offered when I explained the pain I was in during a flare.
