Hi, I had my first rheumatology appt last week and now don't know what to do...
The consultant said I had all the symptoms of fibromyalgia, then he said that eventhough I have in addition to these continuous chest pain(since October), recurrent UTI 6 weeks of it (Dec-Jan) and now it's just started all over again!, mouth ulcers, itchy lumpy scalp, swollen lymph nodes and rashes he said he wasn't thinking SLE!
I was too tired to argue...perhaps when my blood work finally comes back it may change his mind. But he said he wasn't going to prescribe me anything, and previously my GP didn't prescribe anything as he though Rheumy would prescribe immunosuppressants. So what to do now? I have been off work since December and see no way of getting back there until some Meds might help control my symptoms. The consultant has asked for a nuclear full body scan but I don't really understand what this is for?
Any advice...can my GP prescribe me something even if it's not immunosuppressants, I definetly need some help or I can see no end to this? Sick of taking antibiotics and only taking vitD I feel like I am just in a continuous loop....🤒
