Hi-
On Saturday (always the weekend) my shoulder got red and hot and hurt bad. I thought maybe I pulled a muscle and put ice, which helped some but it kept getting worse. This morning I woke up and it was bad and I called the rheumies office thinking maybe they could tell me what I need to do. He had me come in.   OF course, in the freezing airconditioning things the joint felt a little less hot and I was worried he wouldn't get it. But he went right to the bad sport moved my arm and knew right where the pain was, then he got the nurse and injected it.  I'm also all red and there are some places on my skin that crack and bleed on my hands and he looked at that and told me what to do.
 
I am so happy, I suffered for three months with the other one and never brought it to my rheumie's attention because I got sent to an orthopedist, who did nothing at all but stick needles in it for two hours.
 
What an awesome rheumie and great medical care. I had to let people know. I didn't know my rheumie could do that for me!  He did a better job than the spinal guys!
 
 
Love, Marji

My old GP was like my rheumie, could do a lot of things and actually fixed things! Isn't it so nice when a doc fixes something! I am so thankful for my rheumie. He has held things together for me and is the one along with my ENT that I remember me and really are aware of whats going on with the lymph nodes and liver and all. They will be the ones to help me if things get bad. And both docs are really reasonable in their charges.
