The rheumatologist's office called and they had a cancellation and want me to come in tomorrow at 10am. I'm nervous but glad I don't have to wait months to get in for an appointment.

What did the Rheumatologist do on your very 1st appointment? I know this will vary from Dr. to Dr. but I was just curious as to what to expect. I figure they will do a head to toe assesment and labwork.

I had my 1st flare up on the April 22 and that's when they drew labs and determined I was positive for the RA, ANA and ANTI DNA DS but now thank goodness I feel like my old self. I hope I can get alot of quesitons answered tomorrow.

One of the more important things they can do is a complete history -- my first appt the nurse took a 1 hour history before I even got to the dr. Check out our 1st thread - www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=29&m=184347 - it has lots of hints & tips about seeing the dr and how to prepare...

Have fun!
