Hello and welcome. I agree with Mountain dreamer, make a list of your symptoms and get a new Doctor, but not just yet.
First of all, tomorrow call your Doctors secretary as a matter of urgency. Do this and tell her you are now VERY anxious as you could not understand what was said to you.She will then get your records and tell you slowly to make you understand. She may not be able to give you a definate answer, but she'll put your mind at rest. I was told i had Lupus BEFORE all the blood results came through. When they eventually did come through, I did NOT have Lupus after all. So dont think the worst just yet, even though i know you will do.
When you have spoken to her, see if she can rush through your Rheumi appointment.If not, if you know the number you call. Doctors will make you wait, so its always best to chase them all the time!
Doctors can say things without a thought for how the patient interprets it. At this moment you DONT know what is wrong with you.So take one day at a time and calm down as much as you can.Come here and we will try and support you until you know.
Hope i have helped a little.
love n hugs
I am still here,just been on new meds so unable to function like i used to.I will pop back,just know im thinking of you all and hoping you are keeping on keeping on.xxxxxxx
