Rheumatologist: Your symptoms may be due in large part to depression, but I recommend consulting a rheumatologist. Appropriate testing will be done. Yes, you may have fibromyalgia but it's advisable to check for other medical issues in view of your fatigue before attributing it to depression or sleeping problems. Continue follow-up with your psychiatrist or see one for proper treatment of bipolar disorder.
