Hi girls sorry your not feeling well at the moment, if your pain is not under control please go back to your doctor,there is nearly always something they can do for you. Have you been refered to a rhumatologist. This illness needs specialist treatment especialy in the early stages so that less damage is caused in the future. Big hugs to all

Hi will your doctor not consider refering you to a rheumatologist, you may be able to get in to see him sooner .. 12 months is an awful long time to wait when your in pain.. lots of hugs
