rheumatologist from hell

I recently visited the world's worst rheumatologist. He ignored all my symptoms and simply waisted my time. He actually said "as you merely don't want painkillers then you obviously have a low to no pain threshold for any pain " WHAT AN #@$/^^'$. I am deadly allergic to any painkillers. Then not only said I had simply cold knees and need to just rub them. I now have to use an electric wheelchair to get about as my joints just give way and I'm in permanent agony. Then topped himself by giving me a prescription for meds that clearly say not to be taken by a female let alone one with heart problems. That man was deadly dangerous let alone the fact I was in agony after the so called appointment and have photos of the hand marks and finger prints on my knees and hands/wrists. Bruised badly and was in agony for days. That man should be struck off.

I'm sorry you went through this, not all doctors are as good as they should be. I've had a few that have been very dismissive with me over the years. I now pay privately to see someone at the lupus centre in London and he's brilliant. It sounds like you've had an awful experience, do you have to see him again? X
