Oh no, that's frustrating about
your rheumy - I'm sure you were looking forward to getting some help and some relief. Is the doc who is covering for her not comfortable helping you through this? I don't know that you should have to wait a week with that pain. It's good that you are starting to feel better but it sounds like you still have a lot of health issues going on. Don't tough it out if it gets too bad. I know you don't want to go into the hospital, but it's better to play it safe.
Hang in there and I hope things keep improving for you. Take care
