A. Rheumatologist is an internist who is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of muscle, bones and joint complaint. If a person is having fibromyalgia together joint pain and inflammation, it would be better for him to be seen by an arthritis specialist who can better diagnose what might have caused fibromyalgia and what others might have been the causes other than fibromyalgia, which should not go undiagnosed.

Q. Hi Everyone, my name is Selly with Bipolar. Are there homeopathic meds for Hypothyroidism and Bipolar?

A. Hi, I also have hypothyroidism along with my bipolar depression. I would agree with Dagmar that getting some conventional medical treatment first is the right way to go. I certainly wouldn't knock a homeopathic treatment that worked, but for bipolar disorder you really should be monitored closely by a doctor. Perhaps you can integrate some homeopathic remedies with your conventional medications, under the observation of a doctor, of course. Good luck, and if you find something that works for you let us know!
