I've been looking for a new rheumy for the last year. My previous doctor was good on paper, but he was horrible to relate to. I would say 90% of his patients were over 65 and he had no idea how to interact with a 19 year old girl. When I had a horrible time with my prednisone... nausea, depression, night sweats, sleeplessness, headaches, weight gain and mood swings, he brushed them off and said "I'm trying to save your life here." Does anyone else have problems being young and dealing with rheumatologists?
I was wondering if you knew of any sites with ratings for rheumatologists who specialize in Lupus. I was seeing a doctor on campus I really liked, but she left until December. I've been having complications lately and a few hospital trips, so I need to get in soon!
