type of doctor

Hi, I have Myotonic Dystrophy 2 and am seeing a rhuematologist. Most people with muscular diseases are seeing nuerologists. Any suggestions. Thanks.

Re: type of doctor

You could ask your rheumatologist if a neurologist would benefit you, and if he/she can recommend one for you. Another option would be to ask your family Dr if you don't feel comfortable asking one specialist to refer you to another specialist.

You could go to the Muscular Dystrophy Clinic at Georgetown University Hospital.
