Q. what is the medical name of the specialist who treats fibromyalgia? The person who treats arthritis is medically termed “rheumatologist”, then what is the medical name of the specialist who treats fibromyalgia?

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. There is as such no medical name for the person who treats fibromyalgia.

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!

We notice that unlike Shakespeare, Donne does not catalogue negatives--for negatives too are positives in that being namable they evoke in spite of the "not." (As Freud said in another context, there is no "no" in the unconscious.) This is what gives Shakespeare's sonnet 130 its humor--rather than negating the lovely positives to which his mistress is lovably inferior, he has already evoked them in the reader's or listener's mind by naming them.
The long-sought manuscript containing Boethius, Li Livres, and a Trevetian commentary namable as Chaucer's source hence remains unfound.
