I have an appointment with one but she can't see me for another 3 months (I've already been waiting a month). It's sort of discouraging! I'm not that pleased with my current rheum either.. I feel as though I need to revamp my doctors. I just called and he can't see me for a month and a half so maybe it's a good time to switch. Thanks!

Medications: Nexium, Pentasa, Percocet and Vicodin as needed, Flintstone Vitamins (my favorite part!), calcium and magnesium supplements, vitamin D once weekly. I follow a low fiber, low residue diet.

What we usually recommend to go visit the lupus.org website and find your local chapter (by zip code). They can provide (usually on their web page) a list of rhuemotologists who are working with them. These are the drs that are most interested in lupus.

I usually also check with my insurance to make sure I choose a dr that will be covered.

Hang in there,

Thank you Lynnwood, I didn't think of that. I am off to look now.
