Has any one got any experience or knowledge of the rhumy consultants at llandudno general hospital?

Ive asked for a referal to Dr. Amend at llandudno for a scond opinion. Im currently under Dr. Lim at wrexham but do not yet have a diagnosis, although she has put me on hydroxychloroquine 2 months ago as she thinks I may have sjogrens but I feel this is only secondary. My syptoms have been getting worst more quickly lately and I fear i will have to give up my part time job completly soon. Id be gratefull for any imfo. or advice. thankyou.x

Hi timmysmom

Good luck for your second opinion, hope you get the help you need. Hydroxychoroquine can help with a lot of Lupus/ sjogren's symptoms as they can overlap so don't despair .xx


Misty14, is right, the medication would be the same. Hydroxychloroquin can take a while to start working for you, it was 4 months for me to see some change and six before I could name all the benefits. Try and hang in there on the job and you will see a difference.
