Following GP's blood tests I was referred to a rheumatologist for the first time at the beginning of December. He diagnosed SLE and said he was going to put me on Hydroxychloroquine. However I have heard nothing since then. How does the prescribing thing work - will he contact my GP for him to prescribe the meds? I left a message with my GP and rheumatologist's secretary querying this but no-one has got back to me. Maybe this all takes time and I am being impatient?
