Rheumatologist: A rheumatologist should evaluate you and then possibly treat the lupus. The pain may then improve also.

See pain specialist: Each person needs to be evaluated on an individual basis. There are several treatment options available. While pain can certainly resolve on its own in several weeks, why wait. I treat aggressively to decrease inflammation, reduce pain, improve function and quality of life. See a board certified pain specialist for thorough physical exam and discussion to determine the treatment(s) best for you.
