Finally a Rheumy Appointment!!
« on: January 14, 2010, 02:53:48 PM »
I visited my AMAZING GP today for a complete check up! She had ran some more blood work last week when I saw her and she is confident that all my "issues" are caused by Sjogrens. BUT the best thing was that she has me into see a Rheumy on February 26th!! My previous Rheumy appointment was not until November 3rd.

I am SO happy!! She also told me to discontinue my use of Celebrex as I have not seen any relief from my joint and muscle pain while I have been on it and it has been very hard on my stomach.

I am hopeful that I will be able to get some relief from some of this soon!!

I'm with YYC. Let's hope the rheumy is a good one. Don't be surprised if he/she disregards everything your GP said. In my experience, they tend to ignore GPs and run all tests from the very beginning.
I miss the good old days. Things were more like they used to be back then.

Sjogrens, Lupus, Fibro, GERD
