Has anyone else experienced such frustration between different clinicians? I have been under rheumatology, dermatology and my GP for 10 years now with vasculitis and sub-cutaneous lupus. My "flare ups" have been getting more and more frequent and my symptoms much worse, hydroxycloroquine no longer works and made me terribly nauseous. My rheumatologist suggested a methatrexate or cytoxin 3 appointments ago, but I didnt want to take it as I was still considering pregnancy. last week I had a terrible, dibilitating recurrence of symptoms, my GP asked the rheumatology team to review me urgently and recommended I start one of the imuno-suppressants as I am now ANA positive (1:160 speckled), have positive inflammation markers and have just been diagnosed with pernicious anaemia and borderline addisons also - but rheumatology have refused and wont see me until July as I was "fine" at my last appointment at the end of December! Has anyone else experienced this kind of thing? I am only 30 and just want to get on with my life
