I had my rheumatology appointment yesterday and I was quite disappointed with it! Although I was diagnosed privately I finally had an NHS appointment after 14weeks of waiting to try and get referred on to the Behcets Center of excellence but after a physical examination and asking my symptoms she explained she wasn't sure if this was behcets that is wrong with me. I have all the symptoms and positive HLAB51. Going forward for her help was re doing bloods and seeing her in 3 months because to her I was having a good day, I wasn't having a good day it's not something to can physically see on a person she has no idea how I feel day in day out. I got given a helpline number to call if I have any rashes or ulcers appear which is typical because an hour after I left I have a mouthful of ulcers. I don't feel taken seriously and don't feel like I was given a chance to tell her my experiences with this I don't know what to do I've waited ages for this appointment which was a complete waste of time.
