Primary, neurologist: Initially your primary care doctor. If it continues after his/her treatment recommendations or there are other factors involved, you may need a neurologist.
Start with internist: An internist is a general practitioner. Problem could be caused by medication causing low potassium, not drinking enough fluids, overusage of muscles, a muscle disease such as pmr etc. If internist can't find cause, consider a physiatrist (specialist in entire musculoskeletal system); or rheumatologist (joint and muscle diseases)., generally, drink more water, eat lots potassium rich foods (fruits).
Family Doc: Usually I go to my family doctor to help me, if could not he will refer to the right specialist.
Rheum or Ortho: See a rheumatologist or orthopedist.Get a more detailed answer ›
Depends: Different clinicians will have certain bias as to whom you should see first. My recommendation is to get evaluated by someone well versed in the musculoskeletal system. This could include a physiatrist, rheumatologist, or orthopedic doctor.
I am unsure if I have pulled or strained a muscle on the left side of my lower back. Maybe disk related. What kind of doctor should I consult?
PCP or orthopedics: Consulting initially with your primary care provider is usually the best course of action, however, an orthopedist may need to get involved in your care at some point. Some consultants are not open to self referrals, and securing an appointment with your PCP will possibly be more timely. Good luck!
Hello. I have 5 years problem at my shoulders and neck. The doctors in holland say my muscles are stresst. What can I do?
Tried phys. Therapy?: There are many possible causes of pain in the back of the neck. A doctor can evaluate to figure it out. There could be a muscle strain or spasm, inflammation in the joints or tendons, nerve pain from the spine or on the skin, an outbreak of shingles, etc... If a person is older or otherwise at risk for cancers, the doctor will look for tumors as well. Young people more often have muscle strains.
What type of surgery would a manometery test indicate/rule out? The doctor mentioned cutting a muscle but I'm not sure what this surgery is.
Depends on Body Part: What's being measured? Manometry is measuring pressure in a squeezing hollow tube. The most common organ studied is esophagus, to find if it moves food to stomach normally. It is often done in severe heartburn that does not respond to meds, or poor movement of food. Cutting a muscle sounds like a treatment for lower esophagus muscle that doesn't relax normally, achalasia. Contact me for more.
Pediatrician: Your pediatrician should be able to begin proper evaluation. The specialist would be a neurologist.
What kind of doctor would perform a nerve biopsy & a muscle biopsy? Do you recommend a dr in Central Jersey who would perform these procedures?

Your physician can examine you, can do blood and laboratory testing to try to clarify. Sometimes a muscle biopsy is necessary. A Rheumatologist can help guide you and your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
Internist: Your internist will the best to start with, he could guide or treat you.
