had appointment today but not with my usual rheumatologist. he asks me if the entanercept has worked. so i told him no. he asks if the methotrexate has worked i said no the only thing that has helped up to now is steroids. so he looks at his computer and looks at me as if im lying and tells me its not possible as my recent blood tests are showing that my condition is inactive. so i say to him how is that possible if im still feeling all this pain still looking at me like im lying he replies i don't know. so now im confused for a moment until he shows me the computer which is showing my last results of blood tests which is when i was last on steroids. so i say to him is it possible that the steroids could be giving low results as they were the only thing that had been working ? he then tells me yes it could be. so why the hell couldn't you as a specialist know that they could be wrong results instead of looking at me like im here lying. looks like im going to be calling my usual rheumatologist to complain not happy that im sitting there clearly in pain to be looked down upon as a lyre when in fact you should know your job and about the drugs and results they can give. now had methotrexate dosage put up along with more steroids and have to have more tests as he still never believed me until i showed him how swollen my legs are and made me laugh inside when he said your ankles look abnormal??????. well you don't say maybe it could have something to do with my condition and the fact they are swollen and giving off lots of pain bloody dim wit
