Resolved Question:

I have lupus, AIH, Menieres Disease, Sjorgrens and Fibromyalgia. I am finding my Rheumatologist less than proactive in chasing down symptoms and giving me answers. My Lupus at the moment is quiet. Should I be talking to an immunologist too?

Thanks for this question

An immunologist won't be very good at helping with this problem. No.

I would try to find another rheumatologist instead.

Not all doctors are created equal and this one sounds like they are not interested in this issue
