Can a Rheumatologist Treat Chronic Pain
I have back problems, including spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, spinal stenosis, sciatica and degenerative disk disease plus bad fibromyalgia, and some arthritis.

I have been trying and trying to find pain relief, with little success.  I have even tried a series of 3 epidural lumbar injections to no avail.

I will be seeing a new highly-recommended rheumatologist, with wonderful credentials, and would like to know the possibility of her treating my chronic pain.  My last rheumatologist insisted that I use a chiropractor for low laster lumbar treatment, but I have never seen FDA approval for this to be used for this purpose.

Please answer.  Thank you.

I'm so eager to see what others say to you.  I too have chronic pain in my head/neck and am treated w/medications by my chronic pain doctor but I still don't feel well and am considering going to a rheumatologist also.  I also just had a baby 4 months ago and I'd like to have some help recovering post-partum.
