I'm just now catching up and wanted to let you know I'm praying about this situation too and I'm so sorry for what you're going through. I wish we could all go to your appt with you!
I just fired my primary this month and last year I fired two rheumys.
Saysusie,Well a lot has happen now. I was so nervous to go back. I was shaking. I tried to do the things Angel said helped her when she was in the same situation. You could tell he didn't like it I came back.
It was a complete turn a round. He listened to me. Checked out my joints real good. Sent me for more labs. He also sent be for x rays. I had a lot of x rays. I probably glow in the dark now. I Know they x rayed my back, spine and hips. Not sure what else. But he still says he don't think it's lupus related. I think he just says that so he don't have to say he don't know what it is.
I also told you before he told me to come back in a year. Well now I go back in 3 weeks.
I don't have any answers now but at leaset things are going in the right direction. Thanks everybody so much for all your help. I'm so glad I get to come here.Thanks Angel and saysusie, For helping me have the courage, I needed to do this.
Bravo to you :thumbs-up:.
I am glad that you went back, that you made him listen and that he is becoming pro-active in your care. Don't back down now, when your results come back, make sure that he explains what each and every one of them means, what the next step in your care will be and what you and he decide about treatment. Also, let him know that each time that you come to see him, you will be coming with your list of symptoms and you list of questions and that you expect him to listen to both and to act on both!
You Go Girl!!! PROUD OF YOU!!!
Peace and Blessings

Like i said...i was too....but a bit of lipgloss and a good professional look and a big non stop mouth did it for me....so why not anyone else.I got so sick...wanted to give up.....i got mad....then even.Now the doctors are listening to both of us and helping us .Well done..im so proud.xxxxxxxxxx

Very arrogant !!!
Still not feeling well but headed to the beach !!!!!
Becky have fun at the beach!!! That is my favorite place in the whole entire world!! I hope it makes you feel better!
