When you see him ask him to refer you to rheumy Val. It is very important in the early stages of any arthritis to get correct diagnosis and treatment. There is new research to suggest that there is significant damage caused in the early stages of arthritis so correct meds at the beginning mean less damage. They used to think put you on mild drugs till you show damage but they have now found that to be incorrect and stronger drugs in the beginning is better for your long term health.
Get them to make the appointment soonest. Val
Please hun be brave and do it XX

Val sweet heart I know your frightened of going but I rely do think you need too Hun. Plus you don't know if any damage is being caused because you've not had the tests!!! X-rays and ultra sound of your joints. Once damage is done it's very hard to repair. At least if you see a rheumy he could say well your actually ok for the moment. But if you don't get it checked out it could be different. Please look after yourself now. I'm only saying this because I don't want any harm to come to youxx

Val...im soooooooo goona Nag u silly now.... Im so happy u r feeling better, but its taking u ages to get to this stage.... Osteo is as painful as any type of artha... u know that.... and Lynne is right... gps dont know as much...rhummys r fab peeps, they enjoy the field of work they r in, its rrare u get a twat of a rhummy... most r fab... better than a gp....u shld go see rhummy, cos for one, when u do need a referal it will take months becos u will be classed as a New patient....your first appt with a rhummy is just an assesement anyway, he will take details of how u r, about the pain etc.... and then say to u " c u in 6 months"...that is the Norm.... but if u leave it now, becos u feel better....then u r jsut delaying the obvious..... your a strong chick, I know its not becos u r worried.... I think its becos u have read so much of the posts that U think(tell me off if im wrong) but I bet u think u arnt as bad as some of us in here...... BUT let me tell u somat val... U dont want yours gettting worse do ya?? so my luffffly lickle friend, make that apppt and make me and Lynne happy XXX
