I've never thought to ask this from either rheumatologist or ophthalmologist before but perhaps someone here can enlighten me. Does active rheumatoid eye disease means my overall disease activity is high? Is it relevant when being reviewed at rheum clinic as my rheum (lovely as she is) doesn't seem that interested? My joints are no worse than usual (!) and I'm not really keen on changing biologics again, although it's been suggested. But my eye disease has flared up really badly and I wonder if it's a sign that my RA is not being managed?
I think this is one of those times when specialists defer to the one there and keep suggesting to talk to the other one. To their credit, they both send letters to one another but it leaves me quite confuddled!
