Hi Jo jo, welcome to the group. You are right there are a lot of great people here. I couldn't manage with out their love and support. I do understand the frustration of trying to get into doctors and all the time of waiting and waiting. I hope the ortho can help you with the pain. It seems like there is a lot of problem on here with people who can't breath. I have a pulm. appt. wenesday but I have been on o2 for 5 years. You might ask to see a pulm just to make sure. alot of pcp's don't know much about lungs.
well I just wanted to say welcome to the group and I look forward to getting to know you
okie- yea thats another place they r sending me, sorry its hard to keep em all straight! i swear never hardly being sick in my life, and now to this, its been alot to keep track of. Some days i dont even know who im seeing i just know i have appts and go to that adress!! lol that sbad!
bsime- yep thats where my pcp is sending me to, just waiting on all these referrals, i had to do the 24hr collection and it cvame out really high in protein, so we shall see. Like i said above its hard keeping track of all these drs!! hopefully it all goes well
also i had just gone for a regular eye exam b4 getting sick, so my dr said to go agian in year becuz of taking plaqenil just to check. Ehhh i hate prednisone finally im down to 20mg a day, was like 60, so my face isnt as swollen, and imuran, havent had any problems with. I finally got tramadol? ultram? for pain last week, does anyone have any opinions on that? It seems to help, i only take it when i really hurt and cant get up?
thank you everyone! i will keep you all posted. Have a good hopefully flare free day!
