    Wink Got through my first recognized 'flare'..

    So, since my diagnosis in Febuary, I've definetly had something of a 'flare'. But it seems to be over. Or maybe the meds got me out of it. But I think my meds are definetley helping. I've gone (almost) 3 straight days with little to no pain.. And definetly nothing that has interferred with daily living. It's so weird to feel that way. Praying that these meds continue to do their job!!

    I have a GI dr. appt. in 2 weeks, to check out my esophogaus and whatnot. I'm still waiting on a referall to process from a new rheumy (that's two hours away.. Ugh.) because the other one here in town has a 4 month waiting list.

    Let's hope until then I'm 'flare-free'!!!!

    Have a great day y'all!

    Isn't it frustrating when the Drs. are so booked up! That is what happened with my dentist. I have had to wait months to get my teeth cleaned and a simple cavity filled. I finally had to find another dentist. I hope your future Dr. appts. go well.
