I am sorry to hear what is happening with you. You need to see a Rheumatologist as soon as possible. I don't understand why your Primary Care doctor will not refer you to one. I am not to sure what Medical is or if it is like Medicaid. If it is you can get a list of the doctors that take that insurance and get in to see a Rheumatologist that way. I have Lupus and have had it for most of my life. I went through pretty much of what you are going through just to get diagnosed. Before I finally got my chance to see a Rhuematologist I was very very sick indeed. I hope that you get to see a Rheumatologist as soon as possible. Saysusie may be able to help you some how. She is very knowledgeable. I am pretty new here.
Lupus for many years. Like most of my life. Sjogrens that started at 35 and Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, Osteo-Arthritis of the spine, Ankylosing Spondilitis, Periferal Neuropathy, mild CP and now just recently diagnosed with PA. I had a disc replaced in December of 2007.
Plaquenil, Sulindac, Imuran, Celiac diet, Tramadol and B12 shot once a month.
