I am so happy to have found this group!
I am looking for a Dr. in the Seattle area. I have an appointment this summer with a Rheumatologist, but I have no idea if that is where to start with testing or with a Neurologist. I was told by a Podiatrist that I have EM. It’s all so confusing to me where to begin. Thank you!
I would begin by searching The Erythromelalgia Association’s physician directory, this way you’ll see a specialist who has dealt with this rare condition before.
Thank you SO much! I see a few Dr.’s very close to me.
I’ve seen 2 of each kind of specialist and I’ve found the dermatologist to be my best. He and my rheumatologist consult but the derm is my most attentive. Wishing you all the best.
Thank you for your recommendations. My PCP just talked to the Rheumatologist I was scheduled to see and she thought I ought to see a Neurologist instead of her. It’s all so confusing!
Stay well everyone!
This is why its so important to see a doctor that’s actually seen EM before, otherwise you’ll simply get bounced around from one specialist to the next.
