    Default Is it time for a new doctor?

    I saw my Rheumy this week for my 12 week follow up and it was very uncomfortable. He is an extremely intelligent man but I think he LITERALLY could not hear me. He asked me the same questions multiple times and we didn't get anywhere. I was asking him about these bone pains I have that are not in my joints and also these pains in my legs that feel like Charlie horses. He ran a CBC and kidney function and it was all normal but there still no explanation for my pains and this stuff HURTS it brings me to tears instantly. He hasn't put a final diagnosis on me I think because my RBC is never low. I have every thing else that points to lupus, positive/high Ana panel, arthritis, rash, raynauds, low C4 complement test... You name it. He has been in practice for 40 years and he has a hearing aid and I still think he did not hear me AT ALL. Is it time for a new dr?
