Does anyone else here see or have regular appointments with the above?
I was put under a rheumatologist who was the person to diagnose me with fibromyalgia. I have had 2 follow up appointments, 1 after 6 months and the other was almost a year later due to covid.
I had an appointment with him in February and he discussed with me the results of my nerve tests regarding carpal tunnel, which I just had surgery on last month, and also that I will be having further mri scans etc, to check for ankylosing spondylitis among other things.
I've heard from some people that they struggle to get seen or once they have been given a diagnosis, they are just fobbed off with pills etc. I guess I'm wondering how many other people are in the same situation as me to have a specialist to keep an eye on things or if they receive no help at all.
I guess it's also a matter of where ye live and how much more busy/ how many patients yer consultant has.
