Alicia from Edmonton asks: Where can I find a doctor who treats fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia often presents as diffuse pain, poor or non-restorative sleep, and a decrease in exercise.  A doctor’s role is to discuss this presentation with a patient, and also rule out other conditions that may present similarly.  Once a diagnosis is made, the first key options for treatment include education around pain management, sleep and exercise.  While rheumatologists certainly see patients with fibromyalgia, many family physicians diagnose and manage patients with fibromyalgia as well.  In Edmonton, there are a number of excellent education programs for fibromyalgia.  Please see our fibromyalgia web page for more information and how to enroll.
