Subject: Re: I have not had anu drugs for my RA only painkillers!
phone your hospital and ask if they have a rheumatology helpline, this is staffed normally by specialist nurses. My experience is very good with these, they have time to listen.
Or you can request a earlier appointment by ringing the rheum secretary and /or medical records.
Tell your rheumy your concerns, write down a list of problems, causes of increased pain like walking or peeling potatoes (2 of mine but not neccessarily yours).
Lastly if the rheumy is unhelpful or you're just not happy, ask for another rheumatologist.
Good luck, hope this helps
