My nurse pracitionor is sure about my diagnosis but my rheumy is not

I don't know if anyone else has had t his problem. My NP, is almost certain that what I have is something lupus and really wants to get rheumy on board with the diagnosis . I see my rheumy Monday, and the last few visits he doesn't seem at all phased by me having anything wrong with me, almost like it's far from the diagnosis. I don't know what to do. I almost feel like I'm crazy.

Hi katequintzel,

How did you get on with your rheumatologist? Are you any closer to answers?


I did, but he discharged me from his practice, so my NP, referred me elsewhere, because she's nearly sure there's something going on. So I'm back to square one, sort of.


I'm sorry to hear that. I hope that you are not waiting long for your next appointment and that it goes better for you. If you need any tips on preparing for your appointment you may find our blog article here helpful -
