Hi oceans, welcome to the group. I'm sorry I know how pain can just make life unbarable. It's nt unusual to go through several drs to find one that you can work with. You two have to be a team. If they aren't helping you need to keep serching. Do you have any other drs. besides your rheumy? I would think they would have sent you to someone for your tummy. Don't you hate it when you can't eat and you still don't lose weight? That sounds like something that would happen to me.
There are some aches an pains that you have to live with but there are also a lot of alterntives out there to give you some releif and if you aren't getting it han you need to find someone that will help.
let us know and if you change drs let us know when your appt is. We are good at encouraging people around here.
