So sorry to hear that you're having so much more pain. ((((((hugs)))))) I know the pain stuff really stinks, I never have a day w/o pain. Gosh, I'm not sure what I'd do with myself if I were pain free for a day. That's something to ponder eh?
I hope that once you get in to see your new Rheumy that you'll like them and that they'll be a good one too. I know a friend of mine, who lives in GA, found a new Rheumy that she really likes. He was hard to get into to see also. She waited a long time to see him, but it was worth the wait. If you would like to know this Dr's name I can get it. Who knows, maybe you picked the same one already. Just let me know and I'll ask her.
I know that you're very frustrated with your current rheumy and I would be too. I really hope that the new one works out better for you. Do you know if they have a cancellation list? If so I'd call everyday until I got an appointment.
Hope you have a good weekend and that it isn't to painful. Try to rest as much as you can. It's hard to do but you need to listen to your body. If it's telling you, that you need to sleep, then do that. I know when I'm feeling really bad, sleep is my very best friend in the world.
Hang in there and know I'm sending gentle hugs, loads prayers, and positive healing to you.
