I cannot for the life of me understand why? Mind you the consultant I saw said that seeing I had a rheumy at my local hosp I would be o.k with him. She said that i'm usually put in for the next available appoint which is always a 1 yr to wait!!! She said that I was on all the correct meds & at the moment there was nothing she could do for me! But she told me if my Dr thought I needed to see them, to get in touch with them & they would see me in 2 wks time? Can you believe that? Because I can't ..... i've got so many medical problems it just doesn't make sense to me! Apart from the 2 mentioned, i've got fibro, APS, RA, MVR, Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Degenerative disc disease, 2 major strokes, 5 t.i.a.'s, Angina, Temporal Arteritis, Vasculitis, Raynauds syndrome, Asthma, & I had stage 3 Breast Cancer & had a radical mastectomy with node clearance, also have a significant curve at the base of my spine & damaged discs had to have surgery, now i'm wheelchair all the time & have had several falls in my bathroom & lounge usually when transfering! 3 mths ago had a fall & landed awkwardly against the toilet, had to go to A & E which showed a had a crushed vertebrae of L2, a couple of mths ago I had cracked my ribs on the left side & 2 wks ago I hurt them again & cracked another one! Then to my horror had to have x - ray on my neck as been getting terrible pains in it! Got a message my Dr wants to see me to discuss them. She said the report said I had significant changes in the vertebraes of C5, C6, C7 where they're jutting out & the discs had more or less gone! I've had a couple of bad accidents in the past where cars have shunted in to the back of me & had severe whiplash! Now with all of this going on & have several other medical probs but not going to push my luck LOL. I'm on a massive amounts of meds, my pain meds are huge ...... very huge but after having this i'm in pain constantly! Getting to the point I don't know what do about myself! I'm so sorry for going on like this, it's nice to let it all go! Thanks for reading this.
