Welcome to the forum Doriefish!

I have no idea why your rheumy does not want to see you before November.

Are you on any medication yet? If you are having problems, do not hesitate to call
your doctor.

I usually see my rheumy every 6-8 weeks but I am on methotrexate and my liver
enzymes need to be monitored because they have been elevated in the past.
