Hi all. Hope you are all doing ok. I have my first appointment with the Rheumy Nurse today since being diagnosed 4 weeks ago. Feeling a bit anxious and apprehensive as not sure what to expect. I have written down lots of questions to ask her and have had tons of grief off my family to ensure that I tell her how this is affecting me. This is mainly due to the fact that I don't appear to have gotten any better since starting on a course of steroids and sulphasalazine. As well meaning as they are, I don't want to go in there like a hypochondriac! Im not the best at putting across how much pain I am still in or how exhausted I feel so any tips would be greatly appreciated from anyone lol. Having read some posts on here I've found that there is always someone who is worse off than myself so I shouldn't complain and feel grateful and hopeful that my condition can be managed in time. I hope you all have a good day x
