I have my first rheumatology appointment tomorrow after years of complaining about joint pain, fatigue and a list as long as my arm of other symptoms.
I have to say I'm pretty nervous. Nervous mainly that nothing will be diagnosed, I'll leave feeling like I'm still hitting a brick wall .
I have recently separated from my children's father, in part because he has no understanding of how awful I feel. He actually said he thought I was lazy and putting it on so he would pick up the slack! I'm at home all day with a baby and a toddler. I think this is putting more pressure on me getting a diagnosis. I know I shouldn't have to prove myself to anyone.
I've written down all the things I think could be related, going all the way back to my teens. My appointment letter states to allow up to 2 hrs and calls it an interview!
I suppose I'm just on here looking for some reassurance, any advice and to find out what I should expect tomorrow.
Any and all replies appreciated!
