Yes, the rheumy should manage the joint and muscle related pain.
IF you have nerve pain or trapped nerves in your spine . . . issues like that . . . a pain doc might be the answer IF your rheumy or GP can't help.
Is your appointment tomorrow with the rheumy or the pain guy?? Is your pain poorly managed??
I hope you'll keep us posted.
