My name is Natalya and I live in the Highlands of Scotland. I've been diagnosed with Lupus, Hughes, Sjogrens and Chronic Pain Syndrome for 10 years now and currently receiving treatment for all of them.
My post has 2 parts really. Firstly, I was wondering if there is anyone else in this group that may be local (ish) to the Torridon/Lochcarron area of Ross-shire? Bit of a long shot but thought it was worth a try! Local to Inverness would be good too.
Secondly, my fiancé and I are getting married in May 2019 and we plan on trying for a baby next summer. I currently travel to Edinburgh to see someone who specialises in Lupus, however there is no Obstetrician that I can find anywhere in Scotland that specialises in Hughes or Lupus. I was wondering if anyone else from Scotland has any tips on the best places to go? I will have to be seen in a high risk clinic and I know that towards the end of the pregnancy that will mean regular visits to the hospital so I am reluctant to have to travel too far. Do you think going to Edinburgh high risk clinic would be the best thing to do seeing as I am seen there for my Lupus?
Sorry for all the questions but hopefully someone might have an answer or two for me!
