Choosing the wrong type of Doctor to treat your fibromyalgia could cause insurance to deny your disability claim.
What type of Doctor should I see for fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a disease that does not offer any objective evidence or test results, therefore the clinical notes recorded by the treating physician become very important to diagnosing and documenting fibromyalgia.
Many people see their family doctor for symptoms of fibromyalgia. But if you have an increasingly serious case of fibromyalgia, you should consult a Rheumotologist.
The American College of Rheumotology (ACR) uses specific criteria to diagnose fibromyalgia. Insurance companies know this, and will frequently deny your long term disability claim or short term disability claim if you are not under the care of a Rheumotologist.
