I understand your pain. My first rheumy, who was king of the world as far as I was concerned, unfortunately died too early. (Early 50's) I haven't yet found anyone nearly as good, and doubt that I ever will. He was the only Dr I've ever found that said "You can feel better" in a way that made me believe it was possible.
I am hoping for the best for you - maybe this Dr has some transition plan in place that will ease your worries.
Thanks for letting us know you are hurting tonight.
