I called my rheumy's PA 3 weeks age to say I had to stop taking the prednisone as it had caused some pretty horrible side effects culminating on my having a car accident. i have heard nothing back until today when some woman from the hospital rang saying she has a referral from yesterday from rheumy booking me in for a bone density as I am taking prednisone. Really!!!!! So I ring the PA and she is vague and tries to tell me she has no record and then remembers and has vague memory of call an got defensive. She very rudely then said well what do you want the doctor to do? I felt like crying but as I was at work and had to hold it together. This is why i really don't want to start on any medications because the aftercare is non existent...I feel completely let down and now just want to give up.
