TELL HIM HOW YOU FEEL, both mentally & physically!!!! This is a real disease, not some mind-trick you can power thru. You are only hurting yourself. If you want his best possible effort, you have to give him the best possible data!! That means tell him everything, don't decide on your own what is relative or not relative. That is his job, and you never know what little observation on your part may give him the key to a better treatment plan!!!
Believe me, I powered thru for years, and there is no reason for it! I think if he hears about
your cognitive difficulties, he may increase your prednisone, which may lower the inflammation and decrease the confusion.
When is your next appt? If more than 2 weeks away, you might think about
moving it up or ask to be put on the wait list for an appt. This stuff can really be crazy-making!!
