I fired my Rheumatologist when she wanted to put me on steroids. I had joint pain and stiffness in most all of my joints... hands, shoulders, back, knees and feet. Inflammation showed up in x-rays. She first thought it was gout, then dx'ed some rare form of arthritis. She never accepted my Lyme diagnosis and mentioned something about
a Dr. Allen Steere conference she attended. I guess she knew a lot on the subject.
All joints got better with Lyme treatment, except for some lingering pain in one thumb joint. It will take time.
You will be in good hands with Dr P in Wilton... one of the best around.
