I finally got an appointment with a Rheumatologist for Feb. 23rd.  Been in a little pain lately (muscles) and have swelling in my ankles and feet.
I am excited to possible get some answers and scared at the same time. 
Usually how long does it take after Rheumatolgist takes blood smaples to get results?

Blood tests usually come back in 7-10 days -- but if your rheumy wants to talk with you personally about them it depends on how busy the schedule is. Especially the first time they usually schedule a follow-up visit.

Thank you. I am looking forward to seeing the Rheumatologist. Been having more symptoms. My wrist have started to hurt and my shoulders and neck have been stiff an hurting for about three weeks now.

I will keep you all updated.
