Today was the last straw with my rheumy.
A few weeks ago I went to him with increased hand pain and a knot on my ring finger. He said he would call if there was anything found in the xrays.
One week.....two weeks....finally I went to the hospital and picked up a copy of the report....arthritis developing..
I wait one more week and call his nurse to find out what I need to do to manage the pain. It took a full day before I received the call this morning.
She said the pain would never go away (Duh) and to continue the two medicines he prescriped for me (what medicine? He gave me samples). I told her the kidney doctor said no to one of them and the other doesn't work for me.
She said she would get back with me later today. No calls back.......
I decided he was not such a great rheumy and I've set up a new appointment with a different rheumy for September.
Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Glaucoma, Asthma, Hypothyriodism, Sleep Apnea, OA, Depression, Allergies, and benign familia tremors
When life throws you lemons....
Pick them up and throw them right back at them! :))
