My last appointment with my rhuemy was the day after Christmas and I was supposed to make an appointment for 4 weeks later, and I didn't, just forgot to, but then I had high hopes for the plaquenil, and if it wasn't doing better after the four weeks, I would be given something else, but was warned those have more serious side affects Scary!!! But then at this point, it even hurts to breath, and my husband told me I am having a really bad flare because I feel hot to the touch. I think it is time to go back to the doctor.
Are you okay, just a bit stiff? not trying to minimize the stiffness, but you know what I mean I hope! It's so frustrating when your fingers don't work like they are supposed to..grrr! I'm happy to hear from you!
It seems there are many of us that are negative, but at least we are able to get treatment It is a long and frustrating road, that I have found. Good luck with the Enbrel, I hope it will be the one that works for you!!! I know that with each med, we are always so hopeful it will be the one!
By the way I am in Colorado, not far from the Wyoming boarder, are you tired of the snow yet?
Hi mom-to-5 it sure is a small world! I am totally tired or the snow, cold, and wind.
Do you see a Dr in Ft. Collins? I went to Dr Thakor last August but have found a great team here thank God cause driving an hour is hard and I-25 has been closed a lot.
I also hope that you start feeling better soon.
Yes I see Dr. Thakor Yes, it is a small world! I have been seeing him for the past year, after my pcp provider didn't know what to do for me, I was sent to Dr.Thakor and thankfully even with a negative test result he still treats me. I have heard that some doctors will not, unless you are positive. Although, at this point he is getting concerned since the plaquenil is not doing what we had hoped, and he is now wanting to try more serious medications.
I'm glad you have found a good doctor as well! The drive on I-25 is not fun, I live about 40 minutes from Fort Collins, and my children go to school there, so we are daily commuters.
Hopefully, we will have better weather soon! I am so ready for spring/summer
