dont know if this is the right place to post or health insurance sucks!! i live in south carolina and am having a very hard time finding a rehmatologist who accepts my insurance..i see a nurse practitioner in a large office, now they have 2 real doctors there but they arent experienced in lupus. i want to treat my condition the best way i can. she only offered me prednisone and i feel there are other things that can help me. i feel she doesnt have enough experience with lupus and will miss something important. i have high cholesterol and my blood pressure was high,but she didnt want to start anything new on me. is it possible to treat lupus without going to a rehumatologist? sorry for the typos lol but fingers are killing me!! im searching for at least a new doctor this place i go to now is huge and i just feel im not getting thr best care
