i was referred to both when I was first Ill, the Neurogist thought I had MS but after 2 x MRIs's I was told the Rheumatolgist would sort me out!
I get 'Nerve pain'? In my feet and have loss of feeling in them too, I take 2 nerve pain killers Pregablin and Carbamazepine for it but despite increases in dose I still have it.
I have a Dx of Undiferential conective tissue disease and Raynards, for which I take Nifdepress Mr and Azathioprine.
Seen Gp for drug review today, she wanted me to ask Rheumalogist about this pain but didn't get the chance! She says I'll have to learn to live with it or she will refer me back to see Neurologist who I did not like and no one has a good word for.
Who do people normally see? Do you think I should ask to see someone else? Gp? Consultant at another hospital?
