It happens alot that way for me, I was dx. in Jan. '05, but recently flaring badly. I laugh that I can't travel, but can enjoy the traveling miseries. Some weeks my blessing is that it's not both hips, or feet, or wrists that are so inflammed I can't bear to use them. They take turns. I saw my rheumy every 3 months for almost two years, and now go every 5-6 months. They have a wonderful patient portal for refills, status updates, dr. concerns, and every pt. is assigned a triage nurse. If I need anything, I just log in and type a note. Hope you feel better soon,
God knows, even if I don't....
