Hi Tobias...I have a neurologist...was referred by my rheumatologist because of ongoing nerve pain and ongoing neurological symptoms. Usually a rheumatologist is the one to diagnose fibro, rheumatic conditions and connective tissue diseases. Bloodwork is usually done to rule out the CTD's.
I think that neurologists have diagnosed and have treated fibro. the neurologist will take a complete medical history and do a thorough exam, checking reflexes, your gait, balance, visual reponse, and lots of other things. Make sure you bring a list of all your symptoms and any questions you may have. They will do bloodwork if none was done earlier.
Hoping your neurologist will help you with your migraines and will be able to get a diagnosis for you to see what is causing all your other symptoms so you can get started on a treatment plan.
In the meantime try soaking in a warm tub for a little relief. If you haven't checked out fibro 101 yet...it is definately worth it...lots of good info,
Good luck to you and keep us posted1
