Hi Sandra,

If you are in need of medical attention and your Dr. Rheumo will not help then you need to go to an emergency room as well as seriously considering finding a new Dr./Rheumo. I don't understand taking you off all your meds that way, but I'm not a Dr.. It's so good to see you back, I wish you were doing better right now.

I would get to the ER as soon as you can and give them all the details and don't take no for an answer. Any time you have been on long term meds they should be tapered down, I can't imagine just pullng them out from under you with no taper. That is mean!

Gentle hugs!

Hey there Sandra,

Haven't heard from you for a few days. How are you feeling? If you get a chance, drop in and say hello. Hope you are doing OK.

Sandra;
Like the others, I am wondering how you are. I totally agree that to suddenly discontinue all meds is bordering on malpractice!! Some meds are very dangerous to suddenly discontinue and MUST BE TAPERED!!!
Have you called another doctor to get a better response than this one. If you still have some of your meds, let us know what they are so that we can help you determine which ones should not be stopped abruptly.
Waiting to hear from you

Peace and Blessings
