You’ll find that your physicians take time to listen. Our goal is to help you the best way that we can.
Diseases That Rheumatologists Commonly Treat:
An autoimmune disorder is a disease process in which the body attacks its own tissue. We use a range of medications to control rheumatic diseases. The most common drugs are called immunosuppressants.
Immunosuppressant medications are used to treat autoimmune diseases. There are many diseases that rheumatologists treat- including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, autoinflammatory, and other connective tissue diseases. To date, we don’t know what causes these disorders.
Talk to your doctor about possible treatment options.
Our physicians are trained to help diagnosis this condition. The diagnosis is based on a widespread pain index and a symptom severity score. Fibromyalgia is a very difficult medical problem to treat. It can be associated with headaches, fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, mitral valve prolapse, dysmenorrhea, TMJ, and depression/ psychological stressors.
As rheumatologists, we help your primary care physicians treat this condition. There is a limit to the benefit of medications, so we strongly encourage individuals who suffer from fibromyalgia to seek expert advice: exercise, eat healthily, lose weight, smoking and alcohol cessation, depression/anxiety control, and there are some medications your PCP can prescribe to help you achieve those goals.
Our physicians are dedicated to teaching medical students and residents. We also give lectures yearly to the medical students and residents so that we are able to teach future physicians the best way to care for patients.
