Hi klowrey, & welcome to the site. You need to see a rheumatologist to get properly diagnosed for fibromyalgia . A Pain Center doc may also make this diagnosis, but a rheumatologist may run more blood work to make sure you have the sister diseases of lupus, chrontic fatique, RA, etc... The rheumatologist would be my first choice. You usually have to get a referral, but it can't hurt to call around & see if you can get in. Just my thoughts...

I, too, have gained weight with Abilify. I am also on Lamictal which also has weight gain as a side?
